US pressure lowers oil prices

And US crude fell 71 cents, or 0.91 percent, to $ 77.65 a barrel by 05:06 GMT, after falling 3 percent overnight

Brent crude fell 33 cents, or 0.41 percent, to $79.95 a barrel, after falling 2.6 percent to its lowest close since early October on Wednesday


Prices reached their highest levels in seven years last month as the market focused on the rapid rise in demand, which coincided with the lifting of closures and the recovery of economies in the face of a slow increase in supplies from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies. OPEC +

The International Energy Agency and OPEC have said in recent weeks that there will be more supply in the next several months, and OPEC+ is maintaining a deal to increase production by 400,000 barrels per day per month so as not to flood the market with supplies
