President Joe Biden has roped in a new, ______(2)_____set of allies in China, India, Japan, South Korea and the UK, which together account for a little less than half the total oil consumption in the world. In an unprecedented move, the group _________(3)__________ steps to release crude oil from their respective strategic reserves that together add up to about 70 million barrels. The move appears aimed as much at cooling rising prices as sending a signal to the OPEC+ that the patience of its consumers is wearing thin. Though the angst is justified, neither of the two objectives may be achieved simply because the balance of power — control over oil reserves — rests with the OPEC+. Though prices may be nudged downwards in the short term — and that has not happened in the 24 hours since the move was announced — in the long term they are bound ________(4)________ back simply because the firepower that the group commands is limited in its ability to influence supply dynamics. Yes, the United States has over 600 million barrels in its strategic reserve and China has another 238 million barrels (as of 2017, the last available official data) while India has 38 million barrels, all of which add up to a substantial number. But these are meant to be drawn down only when supplies are blocked either due to war or a natural calamity. There is a limit _______(5)________ they can be used to influence prices. The OPEC alone, in comparison, lords it over more than 1,100 billion barrels, which is 80 per cent of global oil reserves. The equation is clear.
