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.
