Crude Oil Price Outlook: Weak on Concerns About Global Demand

Crude Oil Price Outlook: Weak on Concerns About Global Demand

Crude oil price, news and analysis:

  • The crude oil price outlook has worsened as the US and China ramp up tariffs on each other’s goods in a trade war that could hit worldwide economic growth.
  • Near-term, that will likely more than offset Gulf tensions and a continuing disruption of supplies.

Crude oil outlook poor

Crude oil prices are dropping following the latest salvos in the US-China trade dispute and further losses now look possible unless there is a breakthrough. The US has already raised tariffs on Chinese goods and China has responded by pledging to increase tariffs on $60 billion of US goods.

US President Donald Trump reduced tensions late Monday, saying the trade talks are “going to be very successful” and he is still expected to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping at a G20 summit in Japan on June 28/29. However, the oil price is under downward pressure on concerns that demand for it will suffer if economic growth slows.

Eight Surprising crude oil facts every trader should know

That is outweighing news that two Saudi oil tankers sustained “significant damage” in a “sabotage attack” off the United Arab Emirates on Sunday. The US has said that Iran may have been behind the attack, ramping up tensions between the two countries.

Meanwhile US sanctions on Iran and Venezuela are also reducing supplies, although US production will likely continue to rise.
