API data show a weekly climb in U.S. crude supply, sources say

The American Petroleum Institute reported Wednesday that U.S. crude supplies rose by 3.1 million barrels for the week ended Oct. 6, according to sources. The API data also showed that gasoline stockpiles declined by 1.6 million barrels, but inventories of distillates rose by 2 million barrels, sources said. Supply data from the Energy Information Administration will be released Thursday morning, a day later than usual because of the Columbus Day holiday. Analysts polled by S&P Global Platts expect the EIA to report a fall of 400,000 barrels in crude inventories, along with declines of 1.4 million barrels for gasoline and 1.64 million barrels for distillate supplies. November crude CLX7, -0.51% was at $51.03 a barrel in electronic trading, down from the settlement of $51.30 on the New York Mercantile Exchange.


** Note with the unreliability of the API numbers highlighted by its constant debacles we offer you the bare bones of that report.
