US to End SPR Releases This Fall – Can Oil Producers Keep Up?

For the past several months, hefty withdrawals from America’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve have kept the market afloat. In April, President Biden authorized up to 1 million barrels per day (MMbpd) to be withdrawn from the SPR, which has gone towards balancing US and global markets.

Traders Exiting Volatile Oil Market, Causing Price Boost

Oil prices are rising this morning as the market bounces back from last week’s sell-off. It appears this week’s rebound is due to trading factors rather than fundamental news influencing prices.

Week in Review – July 15, 2022

This week saw yet another selloff in fuel markets, echoing last week’s drop and recovery pattern. Like last week, prices are rising once again on Friday.

What Inflation Means for Diesel Prices

Oil markets are sliding again this morning after trading sideways yesterday. Inflation is now officially up to 9.1% year-over-year, which means higher prices for just about everything.
