Additionally, while the market has been buoyed in recent days by signs that demand is coming back, renewed fears of a second wave of the coronavirus is spurring some caution.

The demand outlook for oil is "less clear given the uneven recovery thus far as some states are experiencing spikes in new cases," said Marshall Steeves, energy markets analyst at IHS Markit.

API

  • Crude +1.749mm (+1.5mm exp, Platts -100k exp)

  • Gasoline -325k (-1.9mm exp)

After last week's product draws and small crude build, expectations were very mixed this week but API reports that crude stocks rose by 1.3mm barrels last week – more than expected.
