Week in Review

By Published On: July 19, 2019Categories: Crude, Daily Market News & Insights, Diesel, Gasoline

For the week, the Crude Market was down sharply.  It started out Monday down slightly on news that Tropical Storm Barry brought minimal damage to fueling infrastructure.  In addition, China had reported slowing GDP growth for Q2.

By mid-week we saw tension with Iran in the news as a factor affecting markets.  News of rising and falling tensions with Iran could not overcome the large fuel inventory builds that helped bring the markets lower for the week.
