Oil prices rise on potential OPEC+ supply cutsOn Wednesday, both crude oil benchmark contracts touched three-week highs after the Saudi energy minister flagged a possibility, according to Reuters, that the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, also known as OPEC+, would cut production in a bid to support crude oil prices.
