Global oil prices fell on January 14 morning as more travel restrictions were imposed due to rising COVID-19 cases, pushing down demand for gasoline, SİA informs.

The price of March futures for Brent crude fell by 0.11% to $84.38 per barrel, while February futures for WTI fell in price by 0.32% to $81.86 per barrel.

The short-term outlook for travel demand is also likely to be limited by the spread of the omicron strain, the Wall Street Journal reports.
