It's a wild year for the energy trade but so far, hurricane season isn't adding to that. The peak of the season is more than a month away but it's been a slow start. We've had three named storms so far and noting of consequence and the current map doesn't look very interesting.

Last year produced 21-named storms and this offers a good timeline.

Crude oil is flat today at $92.48.
