WTI Slides Back Below $78 As Gasoline Demand Plunges

Oil prices extended their recent gains overnight with WTI topping $78 after very mixed data from API. The recent rally comes as OPEC+ continue to drip-feed production output at 400,000 barrels a day, as the cartel estimates a crude surplus in the first quarter.

Concerns about the Covid-19 omicron variant effect on demand may be somewhat overblown if it broadly continues to yield less-severe illness, which bodes well for crude-oil demand in the long term.

Still Bloomberg Intelligence Senior Energy Analyst Vince Piazza may face near-term headwinds from U.S. monetary policy.

  • Cushing +2.268mm

  • Gasoline +7.061mm – biggest build since April 2020

  • Distillates +4.38mm – biggest build since June 2021
