Brent crude price jumps above US$80 a barrel , first time in almost three years

The price of Brent crude oil jumped Tuesday above US$80 for the first time in almost three years on expectations for surging demand and concerns about supplies as the world slowly emerges from the pandemic crisis.

With the rollout of vaccines and easing of lockdowns this year, bets on demand for the black gold have surged, while an energy crunch in the northern hemisphere has sent natural gas prices to a seven-year high leading to a spillover into the oil market.

At the same time crude stockpiles have shrunk, while increases in output by OPEC and other major producers including Russia have been unable to temper the rally in the commodity.

Brent climbed 0.9 percent in morning Asian trade to US$80.24, its highest level since October 2018.
