Sergey Kolobanov, Deputy Head of the Central Strategic Research Center for the Economy of the Fuel and Energy Sectors, said that lowering the oil price ceiling would be unprofitable for the United States, as the mechanism also has the opposite effect – affecting prices for American producers, reports DEA News.
