Iran tells Trump: stop tweeting, it's driving up oil prices

Oil prices climb on tightening US market

Trump: Gas prices are up and OPEC ‘doing little to help’

Trump indirectly linked USA foreign policy to his demand, saying the US defends some oil producing countries "for very little" money.

The U.S. government has demanded that all countries stop buying Iran's oil from November.

Expectations of the US EIA stockpiles draw buoy oil prices. While Saudi Arabia is facing mounting pressure from Trump to do more, America's oil sanctions on Iran and trade frictions with China are adding to uncertainties with planned USA tariffs on Chinese goods set to start Friday. Back then, the sanctions severely limited Iran's ability to pay for imports of basic goods, which led to a spike in food prices. At the same time, the Saudi's are probably going to try to figure out how to get more oil into the market without causing a rift with its partners.

"With contentious midterm USA elections looming, the President continues to strong-arm Saudi Arabia to increase oil supplies which, at least for now, is containing price action below WTI $75 per barrel", said Stephen Innes, Head of Trading for Asia/Pacific at futures brokerage OANDA.

Brent crude futures LCOc1 were at $77.82 per barrel, up 6 cents from their last close. By withdrawing from the deal, America reimposes economic sanctions on Iran, impacting Tehran's ability to sell its oil on the market.
