API data from late yesterday:

  • Crude -8153K
  • Gasoline +2418K
  • Distillates +428K

WTI was trading at $73.73 just before the report and is slightly lower afterwards. The headline is a bit lighter than API data but the gasoline and distillates numbers are more bullish. There are no big surprises here and the market will get right back to focusing on tomorrow's OPEC+ meeting.
