WTI Rebounds After Crude Draw, Distillates Build

Oil prices rollercoastered overnight after a relatively weak API report with WTI testing down to a $66 handle before rallying up to a $68 handle and then fading back to unchanged from last night's API report.

Additionally, crude inventories in Europe’s key oil-trading hub have fallen to the lowest since March 2020, partly due to constrained supply from Russia and the North Sea.

“European demand is seeing a late summer recovery with improved refining margins,” Jane Rangel, a crude analyst with Energy Aspects, said by email.

“Turnarounds are low this month, leaving August runs hitting an 18-month high as refineries maximize use of conversion units.”

All eyes will once again be on gasoline stocks to see if any signs of delta's impact on demand can be discerned…
