And reduced another source in the "OPEC" of the possibility of holding an emergency meeting, saying "do not conduct any preparations. Seems that the idea almost disappeared."

The International Energy Agency said Tuesday, "The growth in global oil demand will be much weaker than expected," and noted that "the record crude prices may fall further."
The agency noted that "OPEC may not necessarily play a role anymore flexible product that achieves balance in the oil market."
