The Intermediate raw state of Texas Texas Intermediate increased by 1.5% to $ 61.08 in barrel.

"Saudi Aramco's customer allocation will fall from 500,000 pd in December compared to November, due to the seasonal decline in demand," said Minister Khalid Al-Falih to reporters . This means a drop of around 0.5% of the world's oil supply. Saudi Arabia is the largest producer of the Petroleum Exporting Countries Organization (OPEC).
