Oil hits 9-month high after OPEC+ agreement

 

Crude oil futures hit a 9-month high in Thursday’s trading after OPEC+ agreed to ease oil-output cuts next year.

The decision came nearly a week after contentious wrangling among OPEC+ members. They finally agreed to add 500,000 barrels a day of crude production to the market in January. Afterward, the ministers will meet monthly to review their decision and consider more possible moves.

As a result of the news on the deal, Brent crude ended the day up 46 cents at $48.71 a barrel. It was the highest settlement in trading on ICE Future Europe in nine months.

West Texas Intermediate crude for January delivery rose 3 cents and finished the day at $45.67…a change of 0.07%
