Oil price hits $71.28 per barrel

For the first time in 2021, oil price has risen to $71.28 per barrel in the international market.

This is coming on the heels of Thursday’s meeting where the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other members resisted the pressure to increase production.

Brent oil was up $1.28, or two per cent, to $63.98 a barrel by 1050 GMT on Wednesday.
