The logic behind strong oil rally: US oil inventories down again

US crude oil inventories

Exactly as some analysts anticipated, the EIA, the US Energy Information Administration, released its much-awaited data yesterday while confirming that US oil inventories were down again for the week ending December 25.

The drop was much more than what was expected - 6.06 million barrels.

The value was significantly larger than the number predicted by the API, the American Petroleum Institute, just a day earlier on December 29; the predicted drop was 4.8 million barrels.

There is more encouraging news on the crude oil front: the exports grew by 3.6 million barrels a day, especially to Asia, buckling the previous trend that used to be associated with the pandemic.
