Reasoning
The price of a barrel of oil, which fell from around $147 in July 2008 to just $36 in December 2008, has shown an increase in recent months to around $60 a barrel in May 2009. The oil ministers of Saudi Arabia and Iran believe that, as the world recovers from the global recession, the price of oil will increase further and there may be another price shock ahead similar to that of last year. To prevent this happening experts agree that now is the time to invest in exploration and the development of new fields. However, the opposite is happening. The number of drilling rigs in use around the world fell by 32% in the year to April, and big companies such as Shell and BP have delayed expansion plans and cut staff. Oil-rich states, such as Saudi Arabia (whose king thinks $75 a barrel is a fair price), are happy to see the price rise again to increase their revenue.
