As expected, the euphoria in the hydrocarbon market faded away, provoking a corrective pullback. During the trading session on Thursday, WTI crude oil quotes fell 2.2% and closed the day at $ 60.27 per barrel. The decline continues on Friday. At the time of this writing, the cost of one barrel of oil is $ 59.83.
Earlier, oil was growing amid disruptions in production in Texas due to a sharp cold snap. For the sixth day in this state, record frosts have been observed, which have led to power outages and the shutdown of a number of oil refineries.
