Rise in crude oil prices
Significantly, OPEC + and Russia, the organization of crude oil selling countries around the world, have announced to increase crude oil production by 4 lakh barrels per day every month. Experts say that there is an atmosphere of increase in crude oil prices again. The price of Brent crude has increased from $ 80 per barrel to $ 84 per barrel.
But, if experts are to be believed, there is no hope of a big rise in crude prices now. Because demand from countries like India and China is not expected to increase anymore. That is why the price of Brent crude can remain between $ 80-90 per barrel.
