Oil prices remain lower following last night’s surprise crude inventory build reported by API but analysts continue to expect a draw in the official data this morning.

“As much as the API has taken the wind out of bulls’ sails, the lull in upside is expected to be short-lived,” said Stephen Brennock, an analyst at PVM Oil Associates Ltd. in London.

API
