December 12 2008

Strong growth in oil prices recorded on Thursday in the U.S.. Following the auction, held at the New York Mercantile Exchange, the price of a barrel of "black gold" has risen to 4.46 dollars, reaching 47.98 dollars.

In addition, the market situation was determined by investor expectations associated with the upcoming next week's meeting of representatives of States of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries / OPEC. As expected, they decide to reduce production volumes of "black gold", which aims to raise the price for this type of fuel.

In their view, this does not happen due to a general slowdown in the global economy caused by the global financial crisis, reports ITAR-TASS .
