According to a report from AAA, the price of crude fell on Friday, November 26, by more than $10 to $68 a barrel after news of the Omicron COVID-19 variant broke.
“It’s too soon to tell if fears of a global economic slowdown caused by the Omicron variant will push oil prices lower for the long term,” AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross said. “But for now, the upward pricing pressure due to tightened supply and high demand seems to have abated, and that will likely result in pump prices stabilizing.”
