At the same time, crude oil prices in the international market softened last week, there is a possibility of a further increase in prices as the supply of oil is likely to be disrupted due to the military tension arising in the Gulf region. At the same time, due to negotiations between the US and China towards the solution of a trade war, the demand for crude oil can increase, which can cause the price to rise.
