Oil Demand Could Exceed Pre-Crisis Levels

Coming off a long weekend, oil is climbing to fresh highs this morning as positive sentiment endures.

Trump to Cut China Out of US Supply Chains

After the first weekly gains in a month, oil markets are still rising despite the latest news on COVID-19. This week, that news is less about health than about politics.
