    Key takeaways:

    • Oil prices have risen due to increased tensions in the Middle East; however, prices are still within the range occupied in 2019 and the latest move should have limited impact on global growth
    • Looking ahead, fears of a further escalation in US-Iran tensions are likely to keep prices supported, although global oil market dynamics can act as a buffer to any potential short-term supply disruptions
