Oil Spikes After Biggest Inventory Draw In 13 Months

Storage

After six straight weeks of drawdowns and against expectations of a 2.5mm barrel build, API reported a massive 6.736mm barrel drawdown - the biggest since June 2015. Distillates and Gasoline also saw major draws. The result - unsurprisingly - is a surge in crude, extending the day's gains, even though Cushing saw a modest 80k build.

API
o Crude -6.736mm (-2.5mm exp)
o Cushing +80k
o Gasoline -3.603mm
o Distillates -2.305mm
