API

  • Crude -4.728mm (-2.55mm exp)

  • Cushing -126k

  • Gasoline -6.226mm

  • Distillates -1.882mm

"The problem right now seems to be the Delta variant of the coronavirus, which is holding the market back even though all the evidence right now suggests a dramatic tightening of supplies," said Phil Flynn, senior analyst at Price Futures Group in Chicago.

He said that tightness otherwise should cause prices to "break out to the upside."
