Commerzbank predicts that oil prices will recover over the next week.

“The dollar, which is at least as important as the oil price for the global economy, has recently fallen amid expectations of an approaching peak in interest rates in the United States. The US dollar now costs less than ten NOK,” the analyst writes.

However, the G7 proposal is too low for Greece, Cyprus and Malta, as oil shipping plays an important role there. Negotiations could resume on Friday, but they could also skip, TDN writes and points to Bloomberg.
