Energy Commodities Price Outlook
Energy prices regain some lost ground in May
Energy prices soared 32.8% month-on-month in May, swinging from a 27.7% contraction in April and marking the largest upturn on record and the first this year.
Energy prices rebounded strongly in May, buttressed by falling global oil production and thanks to improving demand conditions amid easing lockdowns in major economies. Whereas oil output cuts by OPEC+ and a sharp slowdown of drilling in the U.S. dominated supply side dynamics, healthier travel-related demand and recovering business activity in Asia, Europe and the U.S. supported prices via increased demand. On the other hand, prices for coking and thermal coal dived in May, defying the overall trend.
