Oil Falls On Demand Concerns, U.S.-China Tensions
Wednesday, 27 May 2020 08:02 WIB | COMMODITY |MinyakWTIBrent

Oil prices fell on Wednesday on concerns over how quickly fuel demand will recover even as lockdowns ease in many countries with falling coronavirus cases, with U.S.-China tensions adding to pressure.

Brent crude LCOc1 futures fell 40 cents, or 0.7%, to $35.77 by 0009 GMT, after falling 1.8% on Tuesday. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures CLc1 were down 49 cents, or 1.2%, at $33.95 a barrel, having risen 3.3% the previous session.

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and producers including Russia, a grouping referred to as OPEC+, are cutting their output by almost 10 million barrels per day in May-June to buttress prices as the coronavirus pandemic quarantines have slashed fuel demand.

In the United States, where some states are opening up after lockdowns, optimism about demand recovering has supported sentiment, but the recovery is fragile, analysts caution as the Memorial Day holiday just passed in the United States typically heralds the start of the peak demand season.
