Four of the state's oil refineries are operating at lower levels than usual due to maintenance and weather-related issues, reducing the supply of gasoline. The hike traces in part to a decision made in April by the alliance of countries known as OPEC+, led by Saudi Arabia and Russia, which opted to cut oil output by 1.2 million barrels per day starting in May. The move amounted to removing roughly 1% of oil from the global market. 2) ANALYSIS: OPECT: cut oil supply by 1.2 million barrels per day starting in May which means supply have decreased by 1 %, which made the price goes up to meet the market equilibrium.
