Oil spikes above $91 on supply concerns

Oil jumps to 10-month high

Why are oil prices jumping to 10-month high?

Hilltower Resource Advisors CEO Tracy Shuchart provides insight on the energy sector on “Making Money.”

The price of oil continues to rise as Wall Street traders eye a potential supply deficit after Saudi Arabia and Russia extended supply cuts.

Brent and West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude prices have climbed for three straight weeks to reach their highest peak since November and are now targeting their biggest quarterly jumps since Russia's invasion of Ukraine in the first quarter of 2022.


That year, oil prices shot above $100 for the first time since 2014 amid the conflict as demand recovered from COVID-19 lockdowns. Meanwhile, the global benchmark Brent Crude ended 2022 near $86 a barrel on fears of global recession.

Over the last quarter, WTI has jumped roughly 27% while Brent has risen almost 24%.

Oil producers like Hess, ExxonMobil and Warren Buffet’s Occidental Petroleum have mirrored the spike in crude prices, rising around 19%, 10% and 13%, respectively, over the same time.

“The price of oil impacts almost every ‘real good’ in the economy, with transport costs making up a major component of many of these company’s expenses,” Q.ai trend analyst Jason Mountford told FOX Business. “All talk has been about inflation coming down over the last year, but under the radar, oil has been steadily gaining since June.”


“Many companies who rely heavily on fuel, such as airlines and trucking companies, lock in oil prices for months in advance,” he said. “So, while you might not see an immediate impact to your hip pocket, it’s something to watch in the coming months.”

Ticker Security Last Change Change %
LUV SOUTHWEST AIRLINES CO. 29.08 -0.61 -2.05%
DAL DELTA AIR LINES INC. 38.89 -1.01 -2.53%


A move back above $100 for an extended time would boost revenues for members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), whose economies rely mostly on oil, while obstructing industrialized economies working to cool inflation and lower interest rates.
