EghtesadOnline: The price of Iranian light crude oil surpassed $53 per barrel in the week ending in February 24, according to a report released by Petroleum Ministry.
Iran’s light crude oil price rose by $1.24 in the mentioned period registering a record rise among other producing countries, IRNA reported.
The oil price rise over the past weeks is mainly due to the commitment of OPEC and non-OPEC producers to a decision to reduce oil production.
