The Price of Brent Oil in Six Months Exceeded $ 70 for First Time
Last Friday, when prices rose on the news of the Suleymani assassination, Energy Aspects analyst Amrita Sen in a CNBC interview noted that market volatility is due to the lack of an answer to the question of how Iran will respond to Suleymani’s death. She did not rule out a possible blow to oil facilities in the Persian Gulf region, like an attack on the Saudi Aramco plant.
The last time a barrel of Brent was worth more than $ 70 at the end of May. Then the rise in oil prices was also associated with events in the Persian Gulf. In mid-May, the United States accused Tehran of assaulting two tankers in the UAE, and the Iranian military threatened to "send to the bottom" American ships.
