Week In Review – May 7, 2021

Oil prices rose for the week, though early momentum faded as the week went on. On Tuesday, the API reported large, across-the-board draws in fuel inventories, which sent oil prices rocketing to $66/bbl before they came back to earth. The week opened with markets ignoring three bearish trends – rising COVID cases in India, progress […]

EIA Posts Steep Crude Draw, While Gas Builds

Crude oil prices are turning lower this morning, still just shy of multi-month highs. WTI crude would need to close above $66.09 to beat its March 2021 peak; after that, the next peak would be $66.30, set in April 2019. Despite lower prices, there’s still plenty of positive sentiment stemming from vaccine optimism, which could […]

Mid-Week Review – May 5, 2021

3 Reasons Oil Prices Should Fall (And the 1 Reason They’re Not)

Oil prices are rising again this morning, retracing some of last week’s gains that were lost on Thursday and Friday.

Week in Review – April 30, 2021

Oil prices climbed higher throughout the week, and one bank sees it as the start of a broader rally.

Could the Driver Shortage Cause Fuel Outages?

Downstream fuel markets have been abuzz following a recent CNN report that warned of gasoline shortages this summer. The cause, though, has nothing to do with gasoline supplies.
