  • Oil rally towards $80 is driven by geopolitical tensions, not supply shortage
  • Saudi Arabia believes brief oil price spike driven by speculators is not grounds for producers to boost output

Reckon they would have a different opinion on the matter if oil prices continue to stick around $50 levels.
