The report also indicated that oil demand would accelerate in the second half of 2017, pairing the bullish and bearish news together.

Earlier this week, the EIA posted an updated Short-Term Energy Outlook. The agency forecasts that WTI crude will average roughly $49/bbl in 2018 and $50 in 2019, a significant change from earlier calls for $60+ prices in 2018 and 2019.
