Crude Oil WTI Futures Market News and Commentary

Crude and Gasoline Market News and Commentary

Mar WTI crude oil (CLG19) this morning is up +$0.26 (+0.49%) per barrel and Mar Brent crude (CBH19) is up +$0.38 (+0.62%). Mar RBOB gasoline (RBG19) is down -0.23 cents per gallon (-0.16%). Crude oil prices are stronger this morning as equity prices edge higher. Also, comments from the CEO of BP, Bob Dudley, gave crude prices a boost when he said that production cuts by OPEC+ should eventually lead to a balanced oil market in 2019. Gains were limited by a stronger dollar and by a decline in the crack spread fell to a fresh 1-3/4 year low, which reduces the incentive for refiners to purchase crude oil to refine into gasoline. Crude prices also fell back from their best levels after the International Energy Agency (IEA) warned that a sharp slowdown in global growth could weigh heavily on oil consumption. Thursday's weekly EIA crude inventory report is expected to show a decline of -500,000 bbl.
