Oil climbs after Biden fails to secure Saudi output hike – business live squib
Brent crude prices pushed past $1 per barrel after US president Joe Biden failed to secure output hike agreements with the world’s top oil exporter

Traders got one clear message from Biden’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia, during which President Biden spoke to a number of Arab leaders.
The message is that it is OPEC+ that makes the oil supply decision, and the cartel isn’t remotely interested in what Biden is trying to achieve. OPEC+ will continue to control oil supply, and one country alone cannot determine the oil supply—at least that is the message that traders have taken from Biden’s visit to Saudi Arabia.
