A slowdown in economic growth would also likely result in stalling fuel demand, putting pressure prices. On the supply side, prices have been receiving support this year from output cuts led by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).
Together with some non-affiliated producers like Russia, the producer group has pledged to withhold around 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) of supply to tighten markets and prop up prices.
But these efforts are being undermined by soaring U.S. crude oil production, which has increased by more than 2 million bpd since early 2018, to an unprecedented 12.1 million bpd. That makes America the world’s biggest producer, ahead of Russia and Saudi Arabia.
As a result, U.S. crude exports have also been chasing new records, reaching 3.6 million bpd in February – more than OPEC members like the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait or Iran produce.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported that gasoline inventories fell by 4.23 million barrels last week, versus forecasts for a draw of 2.08 million barrels. Distillate stockpiles, which include diesel, decreased by 2.39 million barrels, more than the expected decline of 1.44 million barrels.
