The United States' Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecasts that Brent crude oil prices will average $71 per barrel in 2018 and $68 a barrel in 2019.
On the rising oil prices in the country, the minister assured that the government would leave no stone unturned to keep these products within the reach of the common man.
"There was a time when oil producing countries were playing a lead role". The global economy is stronger, fossil-fuel energy demand is at a record high, and the nuclear deal that allowed Iran, an Opec member, to start selling oil again is in tatters.
EIA now forecasts global petroleum and other liquids inventories will increase by 210,000 barrels per day (b/d) next year, a factor that, all else being equal, typically puts downward pressure on oil prices.Most of the growth in global oil production in the coming months is expected to come from the United States.
Fears over the escalating US-China trade war continue to depress the United Kingdom stock market, while the pound fell over Brexit concerns and oil slipped further ahead of a key Opec meeting this week. Those who hate me call me crude."I worry for my future; everyone now talks down on me".
"One should also take into account the fact that US shale oil production increased significantly".
Demand growth has surprised market watchers on the upside in the past two years, with annual increases exceeding 1.5 percent.

There is no incentive for those countries to agree to an increase in OPEC's production because they have no capacity to respond to one. But Iran, Venezuela and Iraq will likely oppose the duo's proposal to increase output.
Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation seem to have agreed to export more oil to bolster the country's economy, to the detriment of fellow Opec members such as Iran, Venezuela who want higher oil prices.
"There are other countries that do not want to reduce the cuts".
The increase of 300,000 to 600,000 barrels a day - above the current OPEC+ production of about 32 million barrels a day - is a less theoretical number. China said it would impose tarrifs on a variety of USA goods, including crude and gasoline, in response to President Donald Trump's $50 billion levy on Chinese imports. China's trade restrictions could leave the growing volumes of USA crude from shale without a buyer, traders said.
For Opec, the next move will be to consider to return to a compliance ratio of 100 per cent of the agreed production cuts of 1.8 million barrels per day in 2016. Saudi Arabia's own data for May showed it increased its own output by 161,400 barrels a day.
Experts like Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets U.K., note that the price of oil is high not only because of OPEC and Russia's agreement to limit output, but also because of Trump's policies, including a decision to reinstall sanctions on Iran.
"It is due to various circumstances in global (oil) market and mainly the value of Indian Rupee has reduced in comparison to US Dollar, which has led to a surge in oil prices".
