Potential slowdown in demand at the pump

Potential slowdown in demand at the pump: Tyler Richey Quoted in MarketWatch

Oil gains on hopes for better demand as worries over wider Middle East conflict linger

There was evidence of that “potential slowdown in demand at the pump” in the Energy Information Administration’s report released Wednesday, said Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research. The implied measure of U.S. consumer demand, gasoline supplied, dropped to a one-month low of 8.969 million barrels per day for the week that ended June 21, he said. That compares with 9.386 million bpd a week earlier.

“The main takeaway is that the unforeseen strength in consumer demand that powered oil futures to multi-month highs in June began to show signs of easing back below trend last week,” Richey said in Thursday’s newsletter.
