As Gasoline Nears $3 a Gallon, U.S. Economy Likely to Motor On

 

By Vince Golle and Sho Chandra

 

Consumer spending in the U.S. is probably well-equipped to ride out near-$3 gasoline that’s made for the costliest driving in four years, though an extended and more pronounced increase could prove more challenging for the economy.

 

The price of regular-grade fuel has climbed 47 cents a gallon, or 19 percent, since the start of 2018, according to motoring group AAA. Pricier seasonal fuel blends and increased summer demand as families go on vacation have pushed the cost of gasoline to its highest since 2014. Nonetheless, the movement in prices from January through May is about in line with the average over past five years.

Saudi Arabia: OPEC and Russia to pump more oil ‘in the near future’

 

By Mark Thompson @MarkThompsonCNN

 

Saudi Arabia says OPEC and Russia could supply more oil to world markets “in the near future” to make up for a collapse in Venezuelan output and the impact of US sanctions on Iran.
OPEC oil producers and Russia are due to meet in Vienna on June 22 to discuss easing supply curbs that have helped drive world oil prices to $80 a barrel, raising gas prices and hurting big energy importers such as India.

 

Oil prices fell by about 2% early Friday. US crude futures were trading at around r$69 per barrel, while Brent crude was worth about $77 per barrel.

Trump is dissatisfied with the understanding with China regarding a “trade truce.” The US also considers imposing tariffs on imported cars and the EU is frustrated with the secondary sanctions on Iran which hit European companies.
