Thousands protest in Iran over United States withdrawal from nuclear deal

Mr Le Maire said he had asked US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin for temporary or permanent exemptions for French companies, citing auto maker PSA, drug giant Sanofi and food group Danone among those affected - in addition to Renault and oil major Total. Some traders, however, are becoming cautious about ever higher oil prices.

Saudi Arabia is ready to work with other producers to mitigate any impact of a shortage after U.S. President Donald Trump chose to exit a 2015 nuclear accord and hit OPEC's third-largest producer with sanctions meant to curb its exports.

Yesterday President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of a landmark deal with Iran and reimposed its economic sanctions against the country.

At that time, conflict had engulfed fellow OPEC member Libya, driving its oil production down to little more than 200,000 barrels per day from around 1.4 million bpd in the space of 12 months. Their most recent report was 2.5 million bpd.

US drivers who've noticed higher prices at the pump may be tempted to blame Trump's Iran decision, but it's only one factor at play right now.

Southampton win at Swansea to relegate West Brom
Carlos Carvalhal will leave Swansea City at the end of the season after the club's final game at home to relegated Stoke City . Romeu, however, wants his team to remain focused against City. "We must react very fast because we have a game on Sunday".

He also believes that "While prices are now rising on Trump's decision to reimpose sanctions on Iran, we may see some limitations to the rally as any lost volumes can be supplied by other producing nations". When asked about the challenges, energy bureau spokesman Vincent Campos said the office "will carry out sanctions policy in the current environment". Premium crude prices ended over $77 a barrel in London trading on May 9.

"The way they are employed best", Peek said, "is through a constant iterative process where we engage those countries, we prod them in certain ways, cajole them in others, and gradually we reduce the amount of investment going into Iran". So, in essence, the Trump administration is deciding that the way they will improve the Iran deal is by threatening to sanction our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

At least some of that oil will now be pulled from the market at a time when oil prices are already rising because of production cuts by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and Russian Federation as well as instability in Venezuela, CNN Money reported. Israel said that a barrage of missiles was sacked at its Golan Heights by Iranian forces following weeks of tensions.

"We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanctions", Trump said.

"We have confidence in our leaders, within and outside OPEC, who have strongly supported our joint efforts with our non-OPEC partners to assist the oil market to restore stability after the worst oil cycle in history, to continue to provide leadership in these uncertain times", OPEC's Mohammad Barkindo said.
