How Gas Prices Changed in Oklahoma Last Week | national news
U.S. crude futures fell on Tuesday, March 29, extending losses nearly 7% on Monday. Fears of lower demand for fuel after the COVID-19 lockdown of around 26 million people in Shanghai have contributed to falling prices, as well as peace talks between Ukraine and Russia .
On Thursday, March 31, members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and their allies will meet to discuss a planned production increase of 432,000 barrels per day. The group is expected to increase its oil production slightly from May, despite a call for even more production. The global market will pay close attention to any positive headlines coming out of the meeting that could signal supply relief, but experts say that’s unlikely.
Earlier this month, oil prices fell when the UAE’s ambassador to Washington said the OPEC member country wanted to increase oil production.
