Oil demonstrated a positive dynamic during the past week after the massive drop. Data from the US Energy Information Administration on Wednesday showed that fuel demand of the top global crude user has averaged 20.6 million barrels per day (BPD) over the past four weeks, roughly in line with 2019 levels. OPEC agreed to boost oil supply by 400,000 BPD monthly, starting in August.
