Also, production in Libya and Iran is affected. Libya is exempt from export restrictive measures to allow the country to grow and rebuild the economy. The production of oil has risen in Libya to the highest point in 4 years. And also Iran may increase production to levels before the sanctions were announced.

Although the low price of oil does not work directly on the pump, they notice a slight fall in fuel prices.
