USO

Natural Gas and Oil Forecast: Prices Plunge; Downtrend to Continue or Recovery?

FXEmpire.com -

Market Overview

Oil prices remained mostly stable on Thursday as markets awaited U.S. crude oil stockpiles data, despite resilient U.S. economic activity suggesting higher borrowing costs for a longer period, potentially impacting demand.

The American Petroleum Institute (API) reported a significant drop in crude inventories by 6.49 million barrels, with gasoline down by 452,000 barrels and distillates up by 2.045 million barrels.

This larger-than-expected drawdown could have supported prices, but broader risk-off sentiment exerted downward pressure. Upcoming data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) and the OPEC+ meeting on June 2 will be crucial in shaping oil and natural gas forecasts.
