Iran oil min says Tehran prefers ‘reasonable’ oil price


Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zangeneh said on Sunday that Tehran preferred a “reasonable” crude oil price to avoid market instability, the ministry’s news agency Shana reported.

Zangeneh said that reasonable oil prices would “encourage producers to keep supply while it would prevent global markets from plunging into instability,” according to Shana.

He added that “manufactured tensions” were the reason behind the current rise in oil prices.

Oil prices rose about 2 percent on Friday, with Brent settling up $1.25 at $74.87 a barrel, as global supplies remained tight and the market awaited news from Washington on possible new U.S. sanctions against Iran. [O/R]

    savvy political move by Iran. there’s been a lot of articles about Saudi Arabia wanting $100 a barrel oil. I know they are mortal enemies – but in much of the west they’d be lumped together as “OPEC”.

    Iran actually holds the trump cards.
    I’ll let you figure it out.

    Russia would love higher oil prices as well.

    The reasonable price I prefer is zero. Nothing, the best price and very reasonable.

    Some may disagree, but it is the preferred price for me.

    If you have a billion dollars, everything is going to be free.

    A one percent rate of return would yield ten million dollars per year for the person with a billion dollars. Even the money is free.

    For the knothead down the street with a fifty thousand dollar income and bills up the wazoo, free gas would help a lot, like the billionaires get.

    Donald Trump does not pay for the jet fuel to fuel up Air Force One, everybody else does.

    The 54,000 gallons of jet fuel is paid for by you, Trump rides for free.

    You gotta pay.

    Everything is free when you have that much money.

    If the President can fly for free, then everybody should have free fuel and transportation.

    It is only fair.

    Iran should give away their oil to the US. Iran is rich, they have a lot of stuff too.

    They could at least give away their oil. Ain’t gonna matter that much to them either.

    ‘We’ are already giving away our children’s future, ‘selling’ oil below ‘real’ cost of production.

    Don’t forget, ONLY USD transactions can be
    sanctioned. This opens up cyber coin, euros, yuan

    IMO Trump went a long way towards killing off
    USD as THE world exchange currency.
