The world is going through an extraordinary fuel price rise as the production is unable to meet the demand. The fuel production slackened, as almost all the countries went into a lockdown last year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The demand for fuel grew manifold as economies reopened steadily, but the petroleum industry has been struggling to catch up with the demand resulting in price rise.
