Many analysts expect oil prices to rise as Iran's exports fall.
After the sanctions were mitigated within the framework of the nuclear agreement, Iran increased the oil production to about 3.8 million barrels per day.

Weekly U.S. crude oil production hit another record last week, climbing to 10.7 million barrels per day (bpd).
