Psaki said discussions about a potential ban are happening within the U.S. government as well as with other nations. Some U.S. lawmakers are pushing for such a ban. Oil futures rallied on Monday, with U.S. prices CLJ22, +2.99% scoring a gain of more than 3% as the U.S. and Britain considered a ban on Russia oil.
