The sale of hydrocarbons from America’s strategic reserves may occur between November and December, but a final decision has not yet been made, agency sources say.

The main reason why the administration of US President Joe Biden began to consider such a measure was fears about rising prices for hydrocarbons by the end of the year due to anti-Russian sanctions.

The White House is counting on the sale of strategic reserves, along with the imposition of a ceiling on Russian oil prices, to help mitigate the damage from high energy prices.

On September 1, financial analyst of the CMS group of companies Vladimir Sagalaev, in an interview with Izvestia, said that US strategic oil reserves had fallen to their lowest level since 1984. The expert explained this by saying that the American side is helping to balance energy prices by making large sales of oil from its strategic reserves.

The Washington Post reported that G7 initiatives to set a price ceiling for oil from the Russian Federation could face significant difficulties. The article elaborates that the restriction could be circumvented if China and India continue to buy Russian oil at a higher price and then sell it back to world markets at a premium.

On September 2, the finance ministers of the G7 countries agreed to impose a price ceiling on oil and gas from Russia. It was noted that a special coalition would be created to coordinate all the steps. The marginal cost of Russian oil will be determined by a number of technical parameters.

On the same day, the White House announced the plans of the United States and its allies to determine the price ceiling for oil from the Russian Federation in the coming weeks. Washington believes that such measures will help reduce Moscow’s income, as well as reduce world energy prices.
