On Tuesday, the price of Brent crude oil resumed its growth after a recent decline. The price was supported by rising EU stock indexes and macroeconomic releases, indicating the faster-than-expected pace of the European economic growth. Moreover, China’s statistics show that country’s oil consumption has increased quite unexpectedly. In August, 6.297 million barrels per day were imported which is 331K bpd more than a year ago.
