Crude oil and petroleum product prices fell in the second half of 2022 from multi-year highs (1/5/2023)

Crude oil and petroleum product prices were higher in 2022 than in 2021, on average, following Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022.

Tanker rates reach multiyear highs (12/7/2022)

Tanker rates for crude oil, petroleum products, and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) reached record highs in November 2022.

Tanker rates could increase through the winter because on December 5, 2022, the EU ban on...
