US President Donald Trump caused a sharp fall in oil prices on Friday. He saw the prices at the gas pump continue to rise in recent weeks and decided to call the oil cartel OPEC.
“I told them: you have to bring fuel prices down,” Trump said. His phone call had an immediate effect, as oil prices fell by nearly 4% to $ 71.54 on Friday.
In Europe, pump prices have also risen sharply recently. The gasoline price even reached the highest point in five years this month.
