Rising diesel consumption is main driver for higher oil demand in 2017: Shell

"Last year, the majority of the demand growth (was) other products and gasoline. Diesel only made up 27 percent of year-on-year demand growth. This year it is 50 percent and that is huge," said Mike Muller, Shell's vice president of crude trading and supply, at an industry conference in Singapore.
