Following the results of the last week, the price of Brent oil fell by 1.2%, while the price of WTI increased by 0.1%. On Friday, oil prices fell slightly. The fear of the escalation of the conflict between the US and China continues to exert negative influence on investor sentiment. Investors also fear that the imposition of US sanctions against Iran could lead to a reduction in the supply of Iranian oil to the world market. Anxiety also causes the growth of reserves in the US and the increase in production by the OPEC + countries. The cost of the October futures for Brent crude on Friday fell by 6 cents to 73 dollars 39 cents per barrel. September futures for WTI crude fell 13 cents to 68 dollars 83 cents a barrel.
