Roads across the nation happen to be largely quiet in recent days as residents labored at home and limitations were in position to prevent multiplication from the coronavirus.

However, these happen to be eased in recent days, with transport systems and malls opening again and family visits allowed during Ramadan.

This is actually the introduction to prices per litre:

• Super 98: Dh1.91

• Special 95: Dh1.80

• Diesel: Dh2.06

Gas prices within the UAE were liberalised in August 2015 to enable them to move using the market.

April was another volatile month for global oil prices, around crude falling into negative territory the very first time among a supply glut. Oil consumption dropped dramatically as airlines remained grounded and firms remained shut.

The cheapest level that oil prices had formerly fallen is at 1931, once the value stepped to $.1 per barrel.

Prices retrieved somewhat on Wednesday as regions started to help ease lockdowns.

Brent crude futures were up 5.4 percent at $21.57 a barrel at 4.17pm UAE time on Wednesday, while US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) leaped 16.8 percent to $14.41 following a 27 percent plunge within the first couple of times of now.

Cuts of just about ten million bpd, or about 10 percent of worldwide production, happen to be agreed by Opec along with other large producers including Russia. These result from work from May 1.
