  • 06/01/2010 -- Investors regain risk appetite
    After intraday trading as low as $67.15/bbl earlier in the week, the July contract for benchmark US light, sweet crudes rebounded to $74.55/bbl May 27 on the New York Mercantile Exchange in a 2-day rally that some hoped signaled a return of investors’ risk appetite, although the contract dropped to $73.97/bbl in the next session.

  • 04/26/2010 -- Crude unlikely to slip soon

  • 04/19/2010 -- Assessing gasoline demand

  • 04/12/2010 -- A world of $80-90/bbl oil
    It is “now quite definitely a $80-90/bbl world” for crude prices, “and within that world $90 may well prove to be a relatively elastic upper bound,” said Paul Horsnell, managing director and head of commodities research at Barclays Capital in London, on Apr. 9.

    No big surprises were reported at the recent National Petrochemical & Refiners Association meeting in Phoenix, Ariz., although analysts at KBC Market Services, a division of KBC Process Technology Ltd. in Surrey, UK, said the session that “captured the general mood” was titled, “Climate Change Armageddon.”
  • 03/15/2010 -- Crude nears record quarterly price
