  Since the current round of pricing cycle, the global situation of the new crown epidemic has become increasingly severe and has led to restrictions on multinational travel, which has suppressed the prospects for crude oil demand. However, the United States plans to launch a major stimulus plan of US$1.9 trillion in anti-epidemic relief and Iraq plans to reduce oil production The news has given oil prices a certain upward momentum, and international crude oil futures prices have maintained a narrow fluctuation trend.

  Longzhong Information analyst Xu Wenwen said that based on an ordinary private car with a fuel tank capacity of 50L, after the price adjustment, car owners will spend about 3 yuan more to fill a tank of fuel.

"After this round of price adjustments, the price of vehicle diesel in most areas of the country is about 6.2-6.3 yuan/liter, and the retail price of 92# gasoline is limited to 6.2-6.4 yuan/liter."

  The next domestic oil price adjustment window will be opened at 24:00 on February 18, 2021.

  Looking ahead, Zhuo Chuang Information analyst Meng Peng said that the next round of pricing cycle, the rate of change of crude oil will start with a negative value, but the corresponding reduction in the retail price of refined oil will be relatively small, and the direction of the adjustment of refined oil price will be quite different. Certainty.

  Li Yan, a refined oil analyst at Longzhong Information, believes that “the next round of refined oil price adjustments will begin to show a downward trend, with an amplitude of about 10 yuan/ton. At present, there is a high probability that the introduction of the new US economic stimulus bill will be delayed. The vaccination progress in Europe and the United States is not as fast as expected, and international oil prices are under pressure. It is expected that the next round of domestic refined oil price adjustments will have a higher probability." (End)
