Crude Oil WTI Futures Market News and Commentary

Crude and Gasoline Market News and Commentary

Jan WTI crude oil (CLF19) on Thursday closed up by +$1.43 per barrel (+2.80%) and Feb Brent crude (CBG19) closed up +$1.30 (+2.16%). Jan RBOB gasoline (RBF19) closed up by +5.78 cents per gallon (+4.07%). Crude prices erased early losses Thursday and moved higher on a report from Genscape that crude inventories at Cushing, the delivery point of WTI futures, will decline by -821,985 bbl the week ended Dec 11. A sign of strength in the U.S. economy was also supportive for crude prices after weekly jobless claims fell to a 2-3/4 month low. Crude prices opened lower Thursday after the International Energy Agency (IEA) warned that while crude production cuts announced last week by OPEC+ "may go some way towards restoring balance to the world market," there's still potential for "significant oversupply." A stronger dollar Thursday was another negative for crude prices. Gasoline prices found support on strength in the crack spread that rose to a 3-session high, which may push refiners to purchase more crude to refine into gasoline.
