油价周一接近七年高点,有可能进一步推高全球通胀。目前石油供应仍然受到制约,而对新冠疫情再度引发需求放缓的担忧消退了。

Brent, the international benchmark, has climbed more than 10 per cent in the first two weeks of the year to as much as $86.71 a barrel, exceeding last October’s high, to approach levels not seen since 2014 when oil topped $115.

国际油价基准布伦特原油(Brent)在今年头两周上涨逾10%,至每桶86.71美元,超过去年10月的高点,接近2014年油价触及115美元峰值以来未见的高位。

US oil benchmark West Texas Intermediate has risen more than 12 per cent since the start of year to a high of $84.78, just under last year’s peak. Some analysts are forecasting that the crude benchmarks will trade at more than $100 a barrel again this year unless there is a significant increase in supply.

自年初以来,美国油价基准西得克萨斯中质油(WTI)上涨逾12%,至每桶84.78美元,略低于去年的峰值。一些分析师预测,除非供应显著增加,否则基准油价今年将再度涨至每桶100美元上方。
