The OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) and also other major producers such as Russia are halting their production as the United States became the world’s biggest oil producer by its quick expansion.

Trump’s response to production cuts

United States president told on Monday that OPEC didn’t ask him to stop their domestic production forcefully. Furthermore, Trump said in a press meeting on Monday that he thinks it’s automatically happening, but no one asked the question to him till now. He continued that we would see what happens next.

In a note, Capital Economics said that they expect energy costs to hover around the current situation until the economy recovers.
