After Saudi Arabia, Russia is the second-largest exporter of crude oil.

Tesla’s Chief says it will have a negative impact on Tesla as well.
Crude at 9 years high
On Thursday, crude oil prices rose to $ 120 a barrel on the global market. It is the highest price in nine years. On Friday, crude oil prices came down to $ 111 per barrel with some softening in prices. The gap between the cost of oil and retail sales rates continues to widen.
Crude may reach $185
Russia cannot export oil freely due to sanctions from the US and European countries, according to Morgan Stanley. Currently, only 66 percent of its oil is exported. If the supply of oil from Russia continues to be disrupted, then crude oil could reach $ 185 on the global market.
