The oil prices keep on plummeting, as the activity of the largest ‘black gold’ consumer has declined. China took a small pause in the market. On Tuesday the State Statistical Bureau of China issued a business activity index (PMI) in the industry of the country over August. In a month the official value of the index decreased from 50 to 49.7 points, reports 1Praym.ru.
European analysts say China will keep on pulling down the prices. It should be reminded: in Ukraine the prices for gasoline and diesel fuel have plummeted by 50 kopiyka on average.
