Dubai crude increased week-on-week by about US$2.70 per barrel. Similarly, both MOPS gasoline and diesel increased by nearly US$2.80 and US$1.70 per barrel, respectively.
Reasons for the Adjustment
- Claim of OPEC that supply and demand balances were tightening and oil inventories falling, while compliance with the OPEC-led pact to curb supplies had been “excellent”.
- Firmer gasoline market in Asia amid higher spot demand and limited regional stocks; Indonesia’s state-owned Pertamina is boosting imports to offset low stocks due to scheduled refinery maintenance.
- OPEC and major oil producers eyeing to extend global pact to cut oil output.
- Rising oil demand in China.
FOREX: Philippine peso depreciated against the US dollar by P0.24 to P51.66, from P51.41 in preceding week.
