Crude Oil WTI Futures Market News and Commentary

WTI Crude Closes at a 1-Week High on Positive Vaccine News and Bullish EIA Report

Aug WTI crude oil (CLQ20) on Wednesday closed up +0.55 (+1.40%) at $39.82, Sep Brent crude oil (CBU20) closed up +0.76 (+1.84%) at $42.03, and Aug RBOB gasoline (RBQ20) closed up +0.0154 (+1.28%).
