OPEC, Brent oil prices plunge to $101 per barrel today

This attack was declared an attack on the “global oil economy” by the Houthis which further ignited hike in the global oil prices.

After hitting all-time high record price of $126 a barrel a few weeks ago, the prices of OPEC and Brent crude oil have declined to $101/barrel today (April 12).

International oil prices are staying high from the day Russia has invaded Ukraine and oil prices are still hovering above $101 barrel. Brent oil price dropped to $100 barrel a couple of weeks back, but OPEC oil price stood above $115 a barrel because of Houthis drone attack on the Jeddah’s largest oil depot.
