The overhaul of American refineries has been completed, and the supply of refined oil will increase after the operating rate is increased

the federal weather service predicts that the temperature in the northeast of the United States may be higher than normal before December 26

the OPEC oil price package has been below $60 per barrel for three months. Iran's oil minister Hamane said OPEC did not want to see its package of oil prices fall below $60 a barrel.

"In the face of high costs in oil producing countries, any oil price below $60 a barrel is not a good thing," he said

The OPEC meeting will be held in the Nigerian capital on Thursday.
