  3. 1. Supply-demand relationship Global Economic Development Generally, when the global economy recovers or prospers, the demand for crude oil will rise, leading to higher oil prices. When the global economy recedes or develops slowly, the demand for crude oil will drop, leading to a drop in oil prices. Crude oil inventory Petroleum as a non-renewable resource uses a little less. Therefore, the adequacy of crude oil supply is also an important factor affecting oil prices. With sufficient crude oil stocks, the pressure of oil supply is relatively small, which will restrain the rise of oil prices. Political and Economic Situation of Oil-producing Countries Geopolitical relations, economic development speed, changes in petroleum refining technology and environmental climate change in Saudi Arabia, Iran and other oil-producing countries will have an impact on the exploitation and refining of crude oil, thus affecting the supply of crude oil. 2. US Dollar Exchange Rate At present, most international crude oil transactions are dominated by US dollar, and the change of US dollar exchange rate also has some influence on crude oil prices. If the dollar depreciates, non-dollar-denominated oil will be relatively cheaper for oil-importing countries other than the United States, which will increase oil imports and thus push up oil prices. For oil-exporting countries, because of the depreciation of the dollar, their incomes will decrease, so they need to push up oil prices (such as reducing oil production) to ensure their incomes. 3 speculative capital Oil is also a kind of futures. The frequent operation of speculative funds in the futures market will also have an impact on the fluctuation of international oil prices. For example, the adjustment of oil prices on January 14, 2019 is due to the reduction of production in major oil-producing countries, such as OPEC and Russia, the slowdown in the trend of increasing U.S. crude oil production, and the rebound in the U.S. stock market also led to the rise in oil prices. In this case, domestic No. 92 gasoline rose 0.08 yuan, 95 gasoline, 0 diesel oil rose 0.09 yuan.

  14. SAIC Yu Jingmin: New species must be matched with new retail "With the constant changes of the times and the continuous iteration of technology, automobiles have become the most critical travel link. We think it's very difficult to skip cars in all aspects of future travel. Said Yu Jingmin, deputy general manager of SAIC Passenger Car Company. "All cars should have good hardware first. I quite agree, but it's incomplete. Because we need to consider how to integrate into the real travel scenario to meet the needs of customers. I respect the word "subversion" and dare not say it lightly. What I want to ask is how evolution can not be subverted? Yu Jingmin believes that Internet automobiles are a new species and must be matched by a new retail system. New retail refers to rebuilding the user's journey of using and maintaining cars based on the user's experience, and establishing a new retail service system which covers the whole life cycle of users and is data-driven. Traditional car companies need to break the traditional concepts, upgrade marketing methods, cross-border, and take the initiative to come to our consumers. Real-time online and offline access in the retail system, so that the charm of new species can be generated through services. We should also bring the development of Internet intelligence and scenario into the whole system, exert the power of data, and combine engineering, technology and scenario to truly lead and meet the needs of customers.
