Market highlights of the week
- Oil prices continued to climb amid heightened concerns of a supply crunch this winter even as OPEC+ production cuts and voluntary cuts by Saudi Arabis and Russia persist.
Jet Fuel Market
- Jet fuel prices in all regions rose at a higher rate than the rise in oil prices.
- Reduced Russian diesel export raised concern that there would be less diesel available for Europe from US and East of Suez sources heading into winter . Diesel prices were pushed higher, pulling jet fuel prices along.
- US jet fuel prices rose further in response to falling stock levels that resulted from lower imports and multiple regional refinery outages even as demand remained strong.

Methodology for Platts Jet Fuel price index
Platts Jet Fuel Price Index is published by S&P Global Platts, reflecting its daily assessments of jet fuel spot prices in the physical spot market of relevant regional centers. When a market is not assessed on a particular day, for instance because of a market holiday, the previous working day's spot market price assessment is used.
Each of the individual Platts' assessments is given a weighting by Platts in the regional baskets, based primarily on demand for jet fuel in the region; in a similar way, each of the regional indices is given a weighting in the Global Composite Index .
These values are compared with the average spot prices in 2000, similarly weighted by demand during that period, to generate a percentage figure reflecting the overall rise in markets compared to the base period. As an example, an index value of 200 reflects a doubling of price since the year 2000.
The full detail of the methodology can be found on the S&P Global Platts website.
