Oil Up With Rising Hopes Of Stronger Demand In US, China

China, strictly clinging to zero COVID policy, is due to ease some restrictions in Shanghai while rising cases in Beijing cast doubts over demand rebound.

Oil prices increased on Monday amid stronger demand hopes ahead of the US driving season, and with China easing restrictions in Shanghai although gains were capped by rising cases in Beijing.
International benchmark Brent crude was trading at $111.17 per barrel at 0702 GMT for a 1.07% increase after closing the previous session at $109.99 a barrel.
American benchmark West Texas Intermediate (WTI) was at $111.40 per barrel at the same time for a 1.01% gain after the previous session closed at $110.28 a barrel.
A price rally arose from hopes of improving fuel demand in China, the world's largest oil importer, with the easing of ongoing COVID restrictions in Shanghai expected at the end of May.
Beijing, however, reported a record number of new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, reigniting fears of a shut-down in the Chinese capital as authorities try to contain the outbreak.
Oil markets also rebounded with a weaker dollar, supporting US dollar-indexed crude oil prices.
The US dollar index, which measures the value of the American dollar against a basket of currencies, including the Japanese yen, British pound, Canadian dollar, Swedish krona and Swiss franc, declined 0.48% to 102.66.
The start of the US summer driving season in June is backing the uptick in oil prices, with the auto club AAA expecting a 8% year-over-year increase in travel over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.
Meanwhile, the price upturn was negatively impacted by the lingering EU ban on Russian fossil fuels as the bloc struggles to convince some of its members of the viability of banning Russian gas exports, particularly Hungary, which is highly dependent on Russian gas. -
