WTI, RBOB Prices Slide After Biggest Inventory Build Since October

Tyler Durden's picture

WTI (and RBOB) prices slid lower into the NYMEX close ahead of API's report tonight that showed further major builds in crude and products. Crude saw inventories rise 5.83mm barrels last week - the most since the end of October and while Cushing saw its 4th weekly draw in a row, Gasoline and Distillates both saw major builds.



  • Crude +5.83mm (+3mm exp)
  • Cushing -906k (-700k exp)
  • Gasoline +2.86mm
  • Distillates+2.27mm

The crude build is the biggest since October. This is the 5th weekly build in Gasoline in a row...


And despite WTI's seeming magnet to $53, the API data pushed both crude and RBOB lower...


The market “is starting to pay some attention to the fundamentals. It’s hard not to see U.S. production slowing down the impact of OPEC,” James Williams, an economist at London, Ark.-based energy-research firm WTRG Economics, says by phone

I paid $1.84 per gallon self-serve, 89 octane for gasoline in my area the other day. 


I thought the price decreases were due to Obama selling off the reserve.

The stations in this area all raised prices by 35cents yesterday just cuz they felt like it- 1.95 to 2.30 in the blink of an eye.

Isn't this the time of year for builds?  This table seems to indicate so:
