Iran tells Trump his tweets raised oil price

Oil prices climb on tightening US market

Oil prices climb on tightening US market

The industry-funded American Petroleum Institute will release its weekly tally of inventories later on Tuesday. You impose sanctions on major producers, founders of OPEC. And then, Halff added, Trump assumed "that the increase in prices has nothing to do with the United States when the price increase is to some degree self-inflicted since it is driven by concern about the removal of Iranian barrels from the market".

They say this is to create greater stability in the market and the domestic economies of member states and to ensure a fair return for investors in the oil industry.

Trump again accused the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries of driving fuel prices higher on Wednesday, and urged USA allies such as Saudi Arabia to pump more if they wanted Washington to continue protecting them against their top foe Iran.

In a follow-up Twitter message on July 4, the president said that "the United States defends many of those countries for very little $'s". He added, "This must be a two way street". That was no small feat, especially considering how irritated Iran was at the idea that OPEC was beholden to Trump's Twitter account.

OPEC did not respond to a request for comment.

The clash over OPEC policy and the resumption of U.S. sanctions on Iran has been amplified this week as Trump continues to target the group which he blames for rising prices. Perhaps Trump will ask Putin at their upcoming meeting to increase production. And yet, you are asking them to reduce the prices?! "Need to keep prices down!"

USA crude inventories fell by 4.5 million barrels to 416.9 million barrels in the week to June 29, the American Petroleum Institute (API) said on Tuesday.

Trump's pressure on OPEC comes just as key oil exporters were boosting output, which has been curtailed since 2016 to boost prices.

The price for Brent crude oil, the global benchmark for the price of oil, was up 1.32 percent as of 9:15 a.m. EDT to $78.32 per barrel.

Brent for September settlement advanced 46 cents to end the session at US$77.76 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange.

Russia: Crimea 'Never' to Be Discussed In Negotiations
In early June, Russia promised "consequences" in response to Norway's plan to more than double the presence of U.S. Trump should confront Putin with the "overwhelming" evidence, Graham said.

Matthew Smith, the director of commodity research at ClipperData, told UPI that oil prices so far this week are moving on one hand on OPEC pledges of more production, but correcting later on fears of supply-side strains.

In Vienna, they'll be discussing how to salvage the 2015 Iran nuclear deal which Trump withdrew from two months ago.

USA and Saudi objectives are not fully aligned, however, on oil prices.

The UAE's Abu Dhabi National Oil Co (ADNOC) said on Tuesday it could increase production by several hundred thousand bpd if needed.

The early reaction to Trump's tweet was normal.

The head of Iran's Revolutionary Guards said on Thursday their forces were ready to implement Iran's threat to block the Strait of Hormuz and that if Iran can not sell its oil under the USA pressure, no other regional country will be allowed to.

Outside North America, looming U.S. sanctions against major oil exporter Iran were the focus of attention. The strait spans Iran, Iraq, Qatar, Bahrain, the UAE and Oman. "Please stop this method", the Iranian oil ministry's news agency quotes Hossein Kazempour Ardebili as saying.

Oil will soon cost $100 per barrel due to supply disruptions caused by U.S. President Donald Trump, Iran's OPEC Governor told Reuters on Thursday, as he warned expectations that Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation would help bring down prices were in vain.
