Oil futures recorded the first weekly decline over the past five weeks that finished with progress, and today’s sessions begin with West Texas crude falling 1.7% to $ 33.14 a barrel, while Brent crude fell to $ 34.87 a barrel. However, oil prices are heading towards achieving huge gains, because of optimism about recovering demand for oil, as well as to the support secrets received from production cuts. In this context, Saudi Arabia and some OPEC members have studied a decision to reduce production to the lowest degree, as they were estimated at 9.7 million Barrels per day after June, but the decision is still under study as long as Russia has not supported it yet !
