Attack on Saudi oil site fuels upward march for crude prices
Oil prices pressed higher Monday, March 8, 2021, after strikes on major oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, the worlds largest oil exporter, shook energy markets.

OPEC, Russia send oil price up with deal to contain output
Instead, the group of oil producers opted for caution, and their decision in favor of supply restraint quickly sent crude oil prices even higher. OPEC countries led by Saudi Arabia joined with other countries including Russia to reach the deal in an online meeting Thursday. Under the deal, non-OPEC countries Russia and Kazakstan can make small production increases. While Saudi Arabia has been more cautious about production increases, Russia has been a reliable advocate for more supply. One factor contributing to differences is that Russia can balance its state budget at lower oil prices than can Saudi Arabia, according to the International Monetary Fund.
