Petroleum inventories have been trending downward and OPEC just announced further production cuts to take effect in February. Though OPEC’s long term market power is not what it was in the 1970s, the groups attempts to keep average prices above $30/barrel contributed to the record oil prices of the last year. Now that the group has adopted a $60 price floor target, there’s an added upward bias to prices in the volatile futures markets. In this environment, the US petroleum data summary on Wednesday will bear closer watching than ever even for industries not directly tied to oil.”
