Oil Prices Surge, Russian Oil Imports To Be Restricted By The EU In stages

The New York Times stated that the European Union was working toward enacting a phased-in embargo on Russian oil, to allow Germany and other countries time to secure alternate sources.

HOUSTON: Oil prices surged on Thursday, reversing course after an early fall as speculators purchased futures ahead of a long weekend on speculation that the European Union would phase in a ban on Russian oil imports.

Brent futures were up $1.35, or 1.30 per cent, at $110.19 a barrel. US West Texas Intermediate futures were $1.24 or 1.18pc higher at $105.48 a barrel at 1:06 p.m. ET (1706 GMT) (1706 GMT).

Both contracts were on pace for their first weekly gain in April. For many weeks, prices have been the most volatile since June 2020.
