Reportedly, oil prices increased on Tuesday, assisted by rising optimism that oil producers are following through on commitments to drop crude supplies while fuel demand raises with additional vehicles back on the road as COVID-19 shutdowns ease. Brent crude oil prices futures were rose almost 1.4 percent to $36.03 per barrel.

The United States West Texas Intermediate crude futures was gained to 2.6 percent. The oil industry was sustained by numerous comments from Russia that its oil prices output had declined almost to its target of 8.5 million barrels per day for May and June month under the massive supply plunge agreement finalized by key oil producers. OPEC+ nations are all set to meet again in the start of June in order to talk about controlling their supply drops to shore up oil prices, which are still lower nearly 45 percent since the beginning of 2020.

The key producers of the globe, such as Russia, and Saudi Arabia, agreed in April to diminish their collective outcome by almost 10 million bpd for May & June. The energy minister of Russia recently quoted that a huge increment in fuel demand should ultimately help to drop a worldwide surplus of around seven million to almost 12 million bpd by June or July 2020.
