Oil prices were clearly on the rise on Friday. The price for American oil was for the first time since September this year briefly in excess of $ 60 a barrel (of 159 liters).
According to insiders, the two economic superpowers are close to a comparison. If Beijing and Washington come to an agreement, that probably also means that the US will refrain from further rates. On December 15, the deadline for imposing new rates on more than $ 160 billion in Chinese goods would expire.
A barrel of American oil was 1.1 percent more expensive on Friday afternoon at $ 59.82. Brent oil cost 1.4 percent more at $ 65.10 a barrel.
