This week, sellers had their shot with the tries below the 100-day moving average. On Wednesday, a new low going back to February 26 took the price to the low for the week at $76.72. but the price snapped back higher by the close. Inventory data this week showed a surprise drawdown on Wednesday helping to bottom the price.
