U.S. Petroleum Weekly – June 10, 2010

Crude oil stocks fell 1.8 million barrels for week ending June 4; Gasoline stocks remained flat; Distillate stocks increased  1.8 million barrels; Propane/propylene stocks rose 1.2 million barrels; Total crude oil and petroleum stocks were 0.4 million barrels lower than the week before.

Refinery utilization rose from 87.5% to 89.1%.

Implied demand flat.

Crude oil and petroleum product net imports  fell to 9.8 million barrels. All categories of petroleum stocks are still at extremely elevated levels.

As I wrote yesterday, I expect weaker crude oil price in coming months.
