Oil prices are growing in anticipation of today’s OPEC+ meeting. The alliance is going to determine, perhaps slightly changing the original plans, the parameters of the agreement on the oil production cut.
Now the alliance is monthly increasing its production by 400,000 barrels per day, which in May last year was reduced by 9.7 million barrels per day due to the drop in oil demand caused by the reaction to the spread of COVID in different countries.
