This price increase has been caused by economic sanctions on Russia rather than the conflict itself. The United States informed Tuesday of a ban on Russian oil and gas imports, limiting this way the reserve available to the world's largest economy. For its part, the United Kingdom said it would stop importing Russian oil and the European Union presented a plan to cancel Russian gas gradually.
Moscow has revealed that sanctions could lead to an increase of $300 in world prices. 7% of the oil used in the U.S. comes from Russia, and Russia produces more than 10% of the global crude
So if the USA is getting most of its crude from Mexico and Canada why is our fuel prices rising? Politicians and Wealthy are still profiteering off the pandemic Crisis, and the brainwashed do not want to see it, just follow blindly, if you wake up Vote independen 2024 pic.twitter.com/IbTMxomJ5Q
Ben Laidler, CEO of Tower Hudson Research and global strategist at eToro investment site, said that rising oil prices indicated a gloomy global economic outlook in the short term, which would result in inflation and slow growth.
Inflation in Mexico reached a 20-year high of 7.37% in November and has remained above 7%. The economy grew by more than 5% in 2021, but experts surveyed by the Bank of Mexico foresee a growth of 2.2% in 2022. However, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) expects a 2.8% growth this year.
