Oil suppliers should not manipulate prices - Brady

16 September, 2019 - by Mickey Brady

Sinn Féin MP Mickey Brady said oil suppliers should not be denied access to oil in an effort to manipulate prices.

The Newry/Armagh MP said:

“It’s my understanding that a local oil company were refused access to oil supplies in Belfast today and told to come back tomorrow.

“It’s believed that the company were denied oil to pass on a price hike resulting from ongoing attacks in Saudi Arabia.

“This is an effort to cynically manipulate the price of oil on the back of a global spike.

“This should not have affected access to the existing supply and I am calling on oil suppliers not to take advantage of the Saudi attacks to pass on immediate hikes to customers.”
