Crude Oil WTI Futures Market News and Commentary

Crude and Gasoline Market News and Commentary

Feb WTI crude oil (CLG19) on Thursday closed down -$0.24 (-0.46%) per barrel and Mar Brent crude (CBH19) closed down -$0.14 (-0.23%). Feb RBOB gasoline (RBG19) closed up +1.41 cents per gallon (+1.00%). A rally in the dollar index to a 1-1/2 week high Thursday put pressure on the energy complex. Also, negative carry-over from Wednesday's EIA data weighed on energy prices after U.S. crude production increased +1.7% w/w to a record 11.9 million bpd (for the week of Jan 11) and after EIA gasoline inventories rose +7.5 million bbl to a 23-month high. Crude prices recovered most of their losses Thursday and gasoline moved higher after OPEC Dec compliance with its crude production cuts rose to 163% from 112% in Nov, the most in 8 months. Another supportive factor was data that showed OPEC Dec crude output fell -751,000 bpd to 31.58 million bpd, the biggest monthly decline in nearly two years, led by a -468,000 bpd cut in crude production from Saudi Arabia. In addition, weekly U.S. jobless claims unexpectedly fell -3,000 to a 5-week low of 213,000, a sign of economic strength that is positive for energy demand.
