“It’s believed that the company were denied oil to pass on a price hike resulting from ongoing attacks in Saudi Arabia.



“This is an effort to cyclically manipulate the price of oil on the back of a global spike.

He added, “This should not have affected access to the existing supply and I am calling on oil suppliers not to take advantage of the Saudi attacks to pass on immediate hikes to customers.”
