U.S. Crude Oil Inventories

Latest Release
Oct 19, 2016
The Energy Information Administration's (EIA) Crude Oil Inventories measures the weekly change in the number of barrels of commercial crude oil held by US firms. The level of inventories influences the price of petroleum products, which can have an impact on inflation.

If the increase in crude inventories is more than expected, it implies weaker demand and is bearish for crude prices. The same can be said if a decline in inventories is less than expected.

Inventories creeping up again. How many tankers are left to fill. Once the excess is released onto the market I expect inventories to spike up later this summer.
