Based on a 50-liter fuel tank of an ordinary private car, it costs about 6 yuan to fill a tank of fuel.
Recently, international crude oil futures have maintained a continuous upward trend.
Many countries have successively launched new crown vaccination work, alleviating the market's concerns about the epidemic, and the market's optimistic expectation of the demand outlook has boosted oil prices.
In addition, OPEC's rotating chairman reiterated that OPEC is not in a hurry to increase production, and the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) released crude oil inventory data that has fallen more than market expectations. Many good news followed, and international oil prices continued to rise.
The domestic oil price adjustment is the twenty-fourth price adjustment in 2020, and it is also the first three consecutive increases in this year.
After this price adjustment, the domestic refined oil price adjustment in 2020 will show a pattern of "seven ups, five downs and twelve strands", with a cumulative decline of 1,385 yuan/ton for gasoline and 1,335 yuan/ton for diesel.
According to Xu Wenwen, a crude oil analyst at Longzhong Information, based on an ordinary private car with a fuel tank capacity of 50L, after this price adjustment, car owners will spend about 6 yuan more to fill a tank of fuel.
After the current round of price adjustments, the price of car diesel in most areas of the country is about 5.8-5.9 yuan/liter, and the retail price of 92# gasoline is limited to 5.8-6.0 yuan/liter.
The price adjustment will increase the fuel cost of private car owners.
The next domestic oil price adjustment window will be opened at 24:00 on December 31, 2020.
Looking ahead, Jiang Na, a crude oil analyst at Jinlianchuang, believes that domestic refined oil retail prices are still expected to rise, and the news has given some support to the international crude oil market. The domestic refined oil market may go up, but the magnitude is not large.
Longzhong Information crude oil analyst Li Yan also agreed with the judgment that oil prices will rise.
"At present, many countries in Europe and the United States have begun to vaccinate the new crown vaccine to boost market demand expectations. At the same time, the Fed may take further easing measures. The US dollar may run at a low level. It is expected that the next round of refined oil price adjustments will have a higher probability."
