  • Oil prices climb on tightening US market

Trump, meanwhile, clearly thinks they should be stabilized at a significantly lower level.

The United States pulled out of a multinational deal in May to lift sanctions against Iran in return for curbs to its nuclear programme.

Oil will soon cost $100 per barrel due to supply disruptions caused by U.S. President Donald Trump, Iran's OPEC Governor told Reuters on Thursday, as he warned expectations that Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation would help bring down prices were in vain. However, if we've learned anything from last Saturday's tweet by the President calling for the Saudi's to increase production by as much as 2 million barrels per day and the subsequent rally to a new multi-year high earlier this week, it's going to take more than talk at this time to break the market. His latest was a reminder that the USA defends many OPEC members for "very little" money. The U.S. will not allow those who buy oil from Iran to do business in America without penalty.

Saudi Arabia's objective, revealed at the OPEC meeting in June, has been to stabilize production and prices around current levels. Cutting prices can be seen as an indication that a country wants to supply more crude.

"We also expect Venezuelan production to decline a further 150,000 bbl/d towards year-end, with risks still skewed to the downside", Bjørnar Tonhaugen, vice president of oil market research at Rystad Energy, said. High fuel prices drain money from consumers' pockets, hurting economic growth while adding to inflation. Prices to (sic) high!

"You impose sanctions on major producers, founders of OPEC, and yet you are asking them to reduce the prices?!"

But most of those states are solidly Republican and likely to vote Trump's party at the mid-term congressional elections in 2018. Most of the Gulf's state oil producers price their crude at a premium or discount to a benchmark.

The price of gasoline is a hardy perennial in presidential campaigns.
