Oil producers expect that oil prices next year will be lower than oil prices this year. As

Oil producers expect that oil prices next year will be lower than oil prices this year. As a result, oil producers are most likely to

a.place more oil on the market this year, thus shifting the present supply curve of oil rightward.

b.hold some oil off the market this year, thus shifting the present supply curve of oil leftward.

c.place more oil on the market this year, thus increasing the quantity supplied of oil at lower but not higher prices.

d.hold some oil off the market this year, thus decreasing the quantity supplied of oil at lower but not higher prices.
