Higher Fuel Prices Means More Ships

Higher fuel prices means ships are slowing down:
"A 10% speed reduction can cut fuel consumption by 30%, which means a ship with a daily bunker fuel consumption of 250 tonnes can cut its fuel bill by about $40,000 per day when the price of fuel reaches $533 per metric tonne (pmt)."
Slower speeds means more ships to move the same amount of cargo.

That is from Fuel saving strategy causing rush on ships
