Pétrole : chute de la chance consommation en Europe

In November, Germany seemed to be the only source of fragility. But in December, the weakness popped up in many more European countries. According to Standard Chartered, in December, year-on-year declines in consumption were reported in:

France (-124,000 bpd)
Italy (-38,000 bpd)
the UK (-36,000 bpd)
the Netherlands (-85,000 bpd)
Overall, in OECD Europe, demand plunged by a staggering 755,000 bpd in December. Standard Chartered argues that the main threat to global oil demand (and oil prices) comes from Europe, not China.
