7:17 am
have since the prices for crude oil soaring in europe aimed to rein in big tack. the european parliament moves to impose unprecedented curves on online content. and we take you to turkey, where record inflation in shops have to raise their prices almost daily. well, look at if the government is making things better or worse, chunky delaney and for land. welcome to the show. global oil prices have surged to the highest level and 7 years this week, but analysts are warning that this could be just the beginning of the price rally. some now expect the price of a barrel of crew to top of 100 dollars this year. strong demand and the price supply problems are largely to blame. but geopolitical tensions are also playing a role. smoke rises from oil tanks that exploded in the united arab emirates. the satellite image shows the aftermath of an attack by humans. iran aligned hootie rebels. 3 tanks exploded,
7:18 am
killing 3 people. the incident is still being investigated, but it shows how vulnerable the middle east is. not just the emirates, but also libya, and many other oil producing countries. geopolitical tensions also including the threat of a new russian invasion of ukraine, have caused a tremendous rise in the oil price within just a year. it increased by almost 70 percent. supply constraints are also adding to rising oil prices, petroleum producers, slight nigeria and russia have under invested in the sector. they expected lower demand because of the transition to green energy in many countries. demand for oil, however, is not decreasing. quite the opposite, especially in china, where the middle class is growing and with it, the demand for heating, oil and gasoline. now for more and that's the ins quarter. our correspondent in new

york joined us now. so yen, what our investors saying here, are we going to see oil at $100.00 a barrel? well, actually, some traders are saying it's not are christian if, but when all will reach $100.00 a barrel. goldman sachs, for example. it says, saying that could already happen in the 3rd quarter of this year. clearly that does depend on demand, what seems to be pretty strong. more and more countries are using a cobit restriction. so that is helping. and then on the other side, we have supplies and they don't seem to get too high at this point. the opec plus countries, for example, are having difficult just to even meet their production quote us at this point. so at this moment it does look that actually we could see $100.00 that at the end will also depend on production in the united states and will also depend on demand. for
7:20 am
example, from china, the 2nd largest economy on the planet. wiggins, you mentioned that there, why is opec plus wire oil producers in general having such a hard time just pumping more oil? well, i mean if you look at the united states, what has been the biggest oil producer on the planet in the past couple of years? a lot depends. for example, on the permian basin, that's where the sale production is taking place here in the united states, especially early on in 2020, when the pen demik started, oil prices plunged. and so a lot of companies actually decided to take down those sale for production. and it does not work like a light switch where you can switch it on or off to take time and investments to get production going again. and then we have those geopolitical tensions. pardon you, for example, in africa while open plots is not meeting their production
