  • Mon Aug 09 11:05:00 CDT 2010 -- Light product stocks grew through July
    Light product inventories—gasoline, distillate, and jet fuel—grew for 9 consecutive weeks through the end of July “due to high production levels, increased gasoline imports (including blend stocks), and lackluster demand,” said Jacques Rousseau, managing director of equity research, RBC Capital Markets, Reston, Va.

    Oil topped $75/bbl July 8 in the New York market on renewed optimism for economic recovery and a larger-than-expected drop in US crude inventories, down 5 million bbl to 358.2 million bbl in the week ended July 2, said the US Energy Information Administration.
  • Tue Jul 06 12:10:30 CDT 2010 -- Low-key hurricane signals active season

  • Mon Jun 28 11:45:10 CDT 2010 -- Global oil demand to outgrow decline

  • Mon Jun 21 12:25:10 CDT 2010 -- Setting the yuan free
    The front-month crude futures contract continued climbing above $78/bbl, and natural gas rose in early trading June 21 after China said it will end the yuan’s 2-year peg to the US dollar and increase the flexibility of its exchange rate.

    US President Barack Obama’s May 30 ban against drilling in US waters deeper than 500 ft because of the Macondo blowout in the Gulf of Mexico helped drive up natural gas prices in the first days of June, industry analysts reported.
