  • OPEC cuts 2022 world oil demand forecast due to Ukraine war
In a monthly report, OPEC said world demand would rise by 3.67 million barrels per day (bpd) in 2022, down 480,000 bpd from its previous forecast. According to the report, "the strong rise in commodity prices in combination with ongoing supply-chain bottlenecks and COVID-19-related logistical logjams in China and elsewhere are all fuelling global inflation." OPEC said inflation was the major factor impacting the world economy and lowered this year's economic growth forecast to 3.9% from 4.2% and said there was a chance of a further cut.
