Oil steadies as demand uncertainty tempers supply cuts
Oil prices, which have been driven higher for the past four weeks, were steady on Monday, with holidays in Singapore, London and New York dampening trade, as rising concerns over demand recovery offset supply cuts, Reuters has reported.
Brent had eased by 5 cents, or 0.14 per cent to $35.08 a barrel by 1014 GMT, while US oil gained 14 cents, or 0.42 per cent to $33.39 a barrel. Both are down around 45 per cent so far this year.
"Uncertainty around the current travel patterns in the U.S. is so great that the American Automobile Association did not release its Memorial Day travel forecast," Bjornar Tonhaugen, head of oil markets at Rystad Energy, said.
Prices are finding support from global supply cuts with the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, known as Opec+, now nearly a month into a deal to voluntarily withhold 9.7 million barrel per day of production.
And the US rig count, an early indicator of future output, fell by 21 to a record low 318 in the week to May 22, data from energy services firm Baker Hughes showed.
"The huge decline in global oil production has doubtless been the key factor in the latest surge in oil prices," Commerzbank said.
