"Fuel prices practically collapsed in the first half of 2020, at a later stage, especially by the end of 2020 the product had a growing trend. However, what happened in January-February exceeded all expectations. At the beginning of February, we received increased prices by 100 USD and more at the Platts. This was prompted by the launch of coronavirus vaccination and general statements on the subject. The market has started to react to this and the oil industry is not an exception, it has shown the fastest recovery," said Vasil Khorava.
