Energy Commodities Price Outlook
Energy prices grow modestly in October on stronger demand for heating
Energy prices rose 0.7% in October, swinging from September’s 5.8% month-on-month tumble and marking the fifth increase in prices since the height of the global lockdowns in April.
Energy prices were boosted at the start of Q4 by a surge in natural gas prices, as demand for heating picked up heading into the winter months. Moreover, the stark fall in rig counts in the first quarter of the year as prices slid and demand softened has led to a slight supply and demand imbalance, supporting natural gas prices further. Nevertheless, recovering U.S. crude oil output amid the resurgence of Covid-19 cases globally and renewed lockdown restrictions—which have weighed on economic prospects for Q4 and oil demand in turn—dented global oil prices, capping the overall gain in energy prices over the past month.
