Oil prices climbed today after a larger-than-expected decline in US crude stockpiles. The US Energy Information Administration reported that the crude inventories dropped by 4.1 million barrels for the week to June 24, nearly double the estimates. “The report is bullish with the large crude oil inventory decrease of over 4 million barrels. The stepped-up demand by refiners and a plunge in imports helped create the decline.” said John Kilduff, partner at New York energy hedge fund Again Capital.


As of 4:48 PM EDT the WTI Crude was trading at 49.52 USD/bbl up 3.49% and Brent Crude at 50.11 USD/bbl, which is 3.15% higher than the previous close.

“Attention is now being focused more on the fundamental data again, which point to a tighter oil supply,” said Commerzbank in a note.
