Week in Review – July 29, 2022

Fuel prices rallied this week, contrasting the gloomy economic news reported. Despite GDP contracting 0.9% in the second quarter, fuel prices are ending the week on a high note. Crude is back above $100/bbl – though just barely – and fuel prices are hitting their highest level in weeks. Particularly on the diesel front, prices […]

US May Be in Recession – But Fuel Prices Remain Strong

The numbers are in, and GDP fell -0.9% in Q2, marking the second straight quarter of contraction.  In Q1, the economy contracted by -1.6%.  The typical definition of a recession is two consecutive quarters of negative growth, although there’s a variety of other statistics that play into the official declaration of a recession. Many years […]

What Is It Wednesday – OPEC

Welcome to our continuing FUELSNews series: What Is It Wednesday. Each week, we’ll pick a fuel industry topic to explain, so you can learn more about the market and what drives it.   Why do the decisions of one organization create ripples throughout oil markets, causing prices to double or halve over time? Well, when […]

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. This time around, though, crude oil has not quite recovered the $100/bbl mark. This week brought news that inflation has climbed to 9.1% year-over-year, the highest reading in decades. […]

Week in Review – March 18, 2022

This week headlines included Russia-Ukraine talks driving prices down at the beginning of the week, oil falling below $100 and what that means for gas, where Russian sanctions are hurting most, and the Fed approving an interest rate hike. Since the invasion, Russia has already agreed to allow safe zones for Ukrainian citizens; however, the […]

Ida Knocks Out Supply and Demand, Leaving Markets Neutral

Although the morning opened with a steep selloff, prices have recovered most of those losses. Prices leaped higher as Hurricane Ida approached the Gulf Coast, but gains are subsiding slowly. After dropping $1/bbl this morning, crude oil has narrowed losses to just 30 cents, while fuel prices are less than 2 cents down. Although refinery […]

Oil Rockets Higher After 3-Month Low

This morning crude opened at $61.96, the lowest price since May; however, prices began rebounding later in the morning on a weaker US dollar and short-covering. Similar to crude oil this morning, diesel also opened at a multi-month low of $1.8970 and gasoline opened at $2.0101 to start off the week. The US Dollar has […]

COVID Variants & Crude Draw Sends Oil into Tailspin

Oil prices continue sinking this morning, extending the streak of losses to four days if current prices hold. Although COVID variants have been a talking point for months now, sentiment is now shifting markedly. Before, variant concerns were met with a retort that vaccines were available and just needed time. Now vaccine rollouts have slowed, […]

Inventories Drop to Lowest Levels Since January 2020

This morning oil prices rose as yesterday’s report of crude oil stockpiles falling spread through the market. According to reports, the U.S. stockpiles fell to their lowest since January of 2020. While it seemed that oil prices were stalling in their rally, the across-the-board draw gave markets another boost. Crude opened the day at $72.40, […]

Week In Review – July 23, 2021

Yesterday, oil prices continued to rise over 4% despite an unexpected crude inventory hike. Investors are buying the dip, capitalizing on low prices in the hopes that prices will continue their march higher over the next few months. Rising prices are somewhat counter-intuitive, given yesterday’s bearish inventory data. Crude oil inventory levels rose Wednesday for […]
