On April 9, Brent crude traded at $102.80 per barrel, while WTI Crude was last spotted trading at $98.26 per barrel, with crude oil price volatility anticipated to keep retail rates high. The oil rise has been fueled by a supply shortage caused by sanctions on Russia and concerns over a COVID-19 outbreak in China. Global crude oil prices are projected to rise further in the coming days, and India, which imports around 80% of its oil requirement, is expected to suffer more consequences owing to a steady reduction in oil stockpiles and concerns about decreasing supplies from Russia.
