Once again oil has shown a drop. Investors are waiting for the meeting of the OPEC+ members in Vienna, which is scheduled for early December.
The January contracts of Brent have slipped by 0.3% compared with the previous session – up to 66.5 US dollars. Futures of the WTI crude oil (with a deadline in January) also have rolled back. They have lost 0.16% and are currently being traded at $ 57.1 per barrel.
