Analysts largely expecting a fairly decent build in crude oil of ~3 million barrels.

Gasoline expected to build, but by under 1 million barrels.

Oil price trends are SUPER ugly today. Any build larger than what was expected in either crude oil or gasoline may mean more bloodshed tomorrow.

Higher inventories in both crude oil and gasoline than expected. US production reported over 10 million bpd. If you thought oil prices were ugly last week, welcome to a whole new kinda ugly this week.

Crude: +3.947MM Cushing: -2.319MM Gasoline: +4.634MM Distillate: +1.1MM

Yep, this is the fear that's been guiding oil prices. Inventory for oil, and overall inflation fears for the entire stock market.

US shale is not going to stop until prices are so low it makes no sense to keep it up.

So where is the place to go for the fastest release of these numbers? Every week i am trading way later than what the market do and only enjoy bits and pieces of the actual profits to be made.

Ah... well, you can pay API thousands of dollars to get the figures directly from them. Alternatively, you can get them from us, about 6 minutes after the release (so, about 4:36 pm EST). We usually have it up shortly after that.

Maybe I should gauge the interest of publishing the figures here a couple minutes earlier? Just the figures without the commentary?

Make no mistake, the Arab states control supply volume due to their large basins and lower costs.

They'd like to think so, anyway.

Analysts expecting a 2.55 million barrel build in crude, 2.0 million barrel draw in gasoline, and 1.746 million barrel draw in distillates.

Any bets on how close the API will be to those figures?

Yes. The full API article will then be released a few minutes behind the raw data.
