7 March, GKFX – Oil is off its recent high and declining again following a surprise boost in API Weekly Crude Stocks showed a buildup of 5.6 million barrels of crude in US refinery stores. The initial reaction was limited, but the realization that the US is still over-producing has begun to weigh on oil prices once again.
Oil supply continues to outgrow demand

With the US continuing to produce oil at historic levels, even the OPEC alliance is struggling to stem the tide with production cuts and banding together with non-OPEC nations to try and cut global oil supply in an attempt to reign in crude’s price.
With the US set to outpace the world’s largest crude producer, Russia, within the next few years, OPEC is fast running out of room to maneuver as US production continues to peak.
