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.

Arno Pfohl  you mean this here https://ir.eia.gov/wpsr/wpsrsummary.pdf  "U.S. commercial crude oil inventories (excluding those in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve) increased by 21.6 million barrels from the previous week." Where do you see this exact 21.563M number?
