Gasoline RBOB Futures Market News and Commentary

Crude Oil Closes Slightly Lower as Economic Growth Concerns Dominate

May WTI crude oil (CLK19) on Monday edged to a new 1-week low and closed the day mildly lower by -0.22 (-0.37%). May Brent crude oil held above last Friday's 1-week low and closed +0.18 (+0.27%). May RBOB gasoline (RBK19) fell back from last Friday's 4-1/2 month high and closed the day slightly lower by -0.0008 (-0.04%). The energy complex on Monday continued to be undercut by worries about the global economy with last Friday's weak European PMI figures and the increased talk about a U.S. recession after the U.S. Treasury 3-month/10-year yield curve spread turned negative last Friday for the first time since 2007. Crude oil prices on Monday were also undercut by news that the Coast Guard reopened the Houston Ship Channel for daytime traffic after the recent full closure due to the cloud of benzene and liquid runoff from the petrochemical storage fire in Houston. Oil prices on Monday received some support from concern about Venezuelan oil supply after the U.S. warned Russia about sending military personnel into Venezuela to help the Maduro regime. U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo said the U.S. and other regional countries will not "stand idly by" as Russia exacerbates tensions caused by the "illegitimate" Maduro regime. Crude oil prices on Monday saw some continued support from last Friday's Baker Hughes report that the number of active U.S. oil rigs in the week ended March 22 fell by -9 rigs to an 11-month low of 824 rigs. The consensus for Wednesday's weekly EIA report is for a -3.0 million bbl decline in U.S. crude oil inventories, a -3.0 million bbl decline in gasoline inventories, and a -500,000 bbl decline in distillate inventories. U.S. crude oil inventories last week plunged by -9.59 million bbls and gasoline inventories fell by -4.587 million bbls. U.S. crude oil inventories are currently -1.0% below the 5-year seasonal average, while gasoline inventories are slightly above average by +0.8%. U.S. oil production in last week's EIA report rose by 100,000 bpd to match the record high of 12.1 million first posted in late February.
