Why allow in any oil?
It can't be for any humanitarian purpose, since what they do receive will doubtless be prioritised for military purposes.
If they stopped all goods then all would suffer visibly and the masses would look to their leaders for succor.

If some oil is allowed in, as you opinioned it will be visibly used by those empowered in leadership and entice the masses to revolt.

It's kind of like our new tax bill. If only the rich benefited the little guy would revolt, so we give them enough just to wet their tongues and not feel totally screwed
