Abstract

In this commentary, we examine the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the various lockdown measures on domestic oil product demand in Saudi Arabia during the first and second quarters of 2020. We explore the pandemic’s effects on six key categories of secondary oil products, as defined by the Joint Organisations Data Initiative (JODI) (2020):

  • liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)
  • gasoline
  • kerosene
  • diesel
  • fuel oil
  • other oil products
