The increase in gasoline stocks of the USA, the world’s largest oil consumer, has led to the perception that demand is low, and the negative pressure on prices continues.

U.S. gasoline inventories reached 241 million barrels last week, up 7 million barrels (3 percent) from the previous week, data released by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) on Wednesday.

According to OPEC’s oil market report for June, developments such as the easing of restrictions in the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19) epidemic, positive data for April in America and Europe, increased mobility and opening of borders compensated for the negative developments in the first half and continued for the second half of the year. increased demand expectations.

In this context, it is estimated that the global oil demand will increase by approximately 6 million barrels (6.57 percent) on a daily basis this year and reach 96 million 580 thousand barrels.
