Crude Oil Supplies Drop 0.6%

U.S. crude oil supplies fell 2.4 million barrels (0.6%) for the week ending March 28, according to an Energy Information Administration report (link opens a PDF) released today.

After increasing 6.6 million barrels the previous week to their highest level since November, this report marks the first inventories draw since the week ending Jan. 10. This latest decrease originated from both a 223,000-barrel-per-day (bbpd) increase in refinery inputs, as well as a sharp 786,000 drop in oil imports. Overall inventories have declined 2.2% in the past 12 months.

Over the past week, retail gasoline pump prices increased $0.03 to $3.58 per gallon.
