We’ve recently reached a summertime lull in the rally despite the fact that rebalancing has demonstrably begun. There’s been a noticeable trend of production drops in key shale areas; and despite the gains in efficiencies, we were on track to see a full crude rebalancing where production would again drop beneath demand here in the U.S. sometime later in 2016.

But our progress has been stalled. And it’s been all about gasoline.

Sure, we’ve had a return of some production from Canada, Nigeria and Libya – although it really hasn’t been all that significant. And yes, we’ve had some financial pressure on oil from new hedge selling from E+P’s, locking in breakevens at $50 a barrel. But what has really stopped…
