Saudi, Russian regimes plan to extend 1.3 million barrel a day oil cut through the end of the year

Source: ABC News

“Saudi Arabia and Russia agreed Tuesday to extend their voluntary oil production cuts through the end of this year, trimming 1.3 million barrels of crude out of the global market and boosting energy prices. The dual announcements from Riyadh and Moscow pushed benchmark Brent crude above $90 a barrel in trading Tuesday afternoon, a price unseen in the market since last November. The countries’ moves likely will increase the cost for motorists filling up at the pump and put new pressure on Saudi Arabia’s relationship with the United States. President Joe Biden last year warned the kingdom there would be unspecified ‘consequences’ for partnering with Russia on cuts as Moscow wages war on Ukraine.” (09/05/23)
