API data reportedly show a weekly U.S. supply fall for crude, sharp rise for gasoline


The American Petroleum Institute reported late Tuesday that U.S. crude supplies fell by 1.6 million barrels for the week ended Jan. 28, according to sources. The API, however, also reportedly showed a weekly inventory climb of 5.8 million barrels for gasoline, while distillate supplies decline by 2.5 million barrels. Crude stocks at the Cushing, Okla., delivery hub edged down by 1 million barrels last week, sources said. Inventory data from the Energy Information Administration will be released Wednesday. On average, the EIA is expected to show crude inventories rose by 1.1 million barrels, according to a survey of analysts conducted by S&P Global Platts. The survey also calls for a weekly supply rise of 1.7 million barrels for gasoline and an inventory decrease of 1 million barrels for distillates. Oil prices were little changed in the electronic trading session after the API data. March West Texas Intermediate crude CLH22, +0.31% was at $88.28 a barrel in electronic trading, after settling Tuesday at $88.20 on the New York Mercantile.
