The condition of oil prices
The oil prices may remain high due to this condition, and it depends on what happens in the global market and the geo-political situation. The oil continues to remain above $100 per barrel. It is still in very high demand, and there are other factors such as constrained supply that can affect the prices. Oil is in huge demand in all industrialized nations, and it is believed that its demand will go up. As per experts, the price of oil is likely to be at average $102 per barrel in 2022 and next year. Brent registered growth of 2.6% and climbed to nearly $113 per barrel. Russia's war with Ukraine is also affecting oil prices. Many European nations have slapped sanctions on Russia, and if Russian oil output is reduced, it can lead to skyrocketing oil prices.
