Oil prices fell sharply Wednesday after weak manufacturing data from China, the world’s largest crude importer, raised fears about demand growth in the second half of the year. Activity data released earlier Wednesday showed that China’s manufacturing sector, an important regional growth driver, shrank for a second straight month in May. Oil is down over 16% this year as China’s lackluster economic recovery and tighter monetary policy from the Federal Reserve weighed on the demand outlook.

Investing.com -- Oil prices edged lower in Asian trade on Wednesday, retaining steep declines from the prior session as markets awaited a vote on the U.S. debt ceiling, while disappointing economic data from China brewed more concerns over sluggish demand.
As anxiety-inducing as the drama over the U.S. debt ceiling was, it has faded from oil traders’ radar with the tentative deal reached between the White House and rival Republicans, leaving the market to agonize over two other things: Fed action over rates and OPEC’s decision on output. Crude prices tumbled 4% on Tuesday amid mounting speculation that the Federal Reserve will raise rates for an eleventh time in 16 months when its policy-makers meet on June 14. The biggest signal for the central bank’s action will be in U.S. jobs data for May, due on Friday, that could show higher-than-expected payrolls growth that forces the Fed against pausing on rates.

Oil prices slumped Tuesday as concerns about future economic growth, particularly in the U.S., the largest consumer of crude in the world, overshadowed relief over the signing of a deal to lift the U.S. debt ceiling. U.S. President Joe Biden and Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced an agreement over the weekend after weeks of fraught negotiations over raising the $31.4 trillion debt ceiling. The deal would raise the debt ceiling for two years, effectively pushing the normally fraught negotiations beyond the 2024 presidential election, and cap some government expenditures.

Oil prices cratered during the early days of the pandemic, taking oil stocks with them. Crude prices and oil stocks have cooled off over the past several months on macroeconomic concerns. Three that stand out are Devon Energy (NYSE: DVN), Occidental Petroleum (NYSE: OXY), and Marathon Oil (NYSE: MRO).
On the other, it’s whether a stay or another cut is coming. New York-traded West Texas Intermediate, or WTI, crude settled Friday’s trade up 84 cents, or 1.2%, at $72.67 per barrel. London-traded Brent crude, the global benchmark for oil, settled up 69 cents, or 0.9%, at $76.95.

Oil prices rose Friday, heading towards their second consecutive week of gains on signs of tightening U.S. supply and improving fuel demand in the world’s largest oil consumer. Both benchmarks are on course for gains of close to 2% this week on expectations of tighter U.S. supplies as the travel-heavy summer season approaches, boosted by an unexpected, hefty fall in U.S. crude oil inventories last week. U.S. commercial crude oil inventories fell by 12.5 million barrels a day, the largest weekly decline since November, while ING noted that “the 4-week average for implied gasoline demand remains just above 9MMbbls/d, which is the highest post-COVID level seen for this time of year.”

The Russians aren’t helping the price of oil — to the delight possibly of the West and the utter frustration likely of other producers within the OPEC+ alliance, not to mention market bulls. Crude prices tumbled some 3% Thursday after Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak, who is also the nation’s de facto oil minister, said he expected no new steps from OPEC+ at its meeting on June 4. Given that Saudi Energy Minister Abdulaziz bin Salman had hinted just 24 hours earlier of the possibility of another round of production cuts at the meeting, Novak’s remarks meant only one thing — that the alliance will keep output unchanged.
