The price of oil futures rose on Monday, as concerns about the stability of crude supply from one of the largest producers in the world were raised by a short rebellion in Russia. The Wagner Group leader, a Russian paramilitary group, made a deal to end the rebellion. Stewart Glickman is an energy equity analyst with CFRA Research. He said that the fear was that a “brewing civil conflict might harm Russia’s capability to export oil“. He said that damage to oil pipelines and ports could cause this. The New York Mercantile Exchange settled August West Texas Intermediate crude CLQ23, +0.56% at $69.37 a barrel, up 21 cents or 0.3%.
