Global Markets: U.S. asks for 1 mb/d from OPEC

OPECAccording to Bloomberg, the U.S. government has asked Saudi Arabia to boost oil production by 1 million barrels per day.

The request would be unusual, but not surprising since high gasoline prices are always a political threat to the party in power.

It does not seem that Saudi Arabia and Russia have reached an agreement yet, but the two countries are considering several options for an increase in production.
