US crude oil extended the rally from late last week, with prices climbing above the $48 mark. The sharp advance was largely attributed to recent comments from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), with the group ready for talks with other global producers to ensure ‘fair prices’. Moreover, a report out of the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) showed outputs were lower than previously expected, with the figures for June showing a 100K b/d drop to 9.3M b/d.
