White House's Kudlow says end to Iran oil waivers won't hike prices

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump's decision to end all waivers that allowed importers of oil from Iran to avoid economic sanctions will not result in higher oil prices, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Tuesday.

"I don't see any palpable impact. The world is awash with oil," Kudlow said during an appearance at the National Press Club.
