WTI Drops On Large Gasoline Build, Oil Demand Slump

Crude prices have roller-coastered over the last 12 hours or so as last night’s API (large gasoline build) sparked selling, then buying waves hit during the late-Asia/early-Europe session, then selling returned with a vengance during the early US session as Kanda’s comments sparked dollar strength and sent commodities lower.

The dismal home sales print sparked dollar weakness and sent oil prices back up into the green ahead of the official inventory data.


  • Crude +914k (-200k exp)

  • Cushing -350k

  • Gasoline +3.84mm (-900k exp) – biggest build since Jan 2024

  • Distillates -1.18mm


  • Crude +3.59mm (-200k exp, whis +800k)

  • Cushing -226k

  • Gasoline +2.65mm – biggest build since Jan 2024

  • Distillates -377k

As Bloomberg’s Lucia Kassai reports, it’s hard to see any saving graces in the EIA report of this week.

Overall we’ve seen surprise builds in crude oil and gasoline inventories, softer demand across gasoline, diesel and jet, and refineries reduced utilization rates in all PADD regions.
