Natural Gas, WTI Oil, Brent Oil – Oil Gains More Ground After EIA Report
- Natural gas remains stuck near the $2.25 level.
- WTI oil moved above the $70 level after the release of the EIA report.
- Brent oil is trying to settle above the $76 level.
Natural gas remains stuck near the $2.25 level as traders wait for catalysts. The weather forecasts remain uninspiring for the bulls, and it remains to be seen whether natural gas will be able to gain upside momentum in the upcoming trading sessions.
WTI oil continues to rebound after the release of the EIA Weekly Petroleum Status Report. The report indicated that crude inventories increased by 1.1 million barrels from the previous week. Gasoline inventories declined by 6.4 million barrels, while distillate fuel inventories decreased by 3.3 million barrels. Meanwhile, domestic oil production increased from 12.2 million bpd to 12.3 million bpd despite the recent pullback in the oil markets.
Brent oil managed to get above the $76 level as the rebound continued. Russia’s recent decision to extend production cuts until the end of June provided material support to oil markets.
