last weekend,Saudi ArabiaOctober exports nearly 7.4 million barrels a day of crude oil, a 3.6% increase in September, up 6.8% compared with the same period last year.In addition, the United States last week to lift the crude oil export bans or compete from Saudi Arabia and the United States soon, this will trigger a new round of crude excess fuel concerns.
