The EIA report indicates that domestic production rose to 12 million barrels per day. WTI oil fell down on the release of the EIA Weekly Petroleum Status Report, which revealed a 2 million-barrel rise in crude stockpiles compared to the previous week. Analysts anticipated a reduction in crude inventories of 1.3 million barrels.


Imports, which grew by 0.8 million barrels per day (bpd) and averaged 7 million bpd, drove the increase. In addition, domestic oil output in the United States increased from 11.9 million bpd to 12 million bpd.

Current crude stockpiles in the United States are around 14% below the five-year average for this time of year. To reverse the present upward trend in the oil markets, crude oil stocks must continue to grow.


WTI crude oil recently attempted to settle above the psychologically significant $120 mark, but lacked sufficient rising momentum and retreated.


Domestic oil output has hit 12 million barrels per day. This is significant for markets because it demonstrates that producers are responding to rising oil prices. Domestic production was 11.2 million bpd a year ago.


The underlying question is whether or whether high oil prices will ultimately put demand under strain. There are now no indications that the economy could not withstand oil at $120 a barrel. For instance, demand for gasoline remained robust, and overall stockpiles of motor gasoline declined by 0.7 million barrels.


In addition, dealers will continue to watch domestic oil output levels. In recent years, oil firms have prioritized financial restraint; it remains to be seen if they will be willing to raise output rapidly. Moreover, present oil prices are quite advantageous to producers.


In this view, the dynamics of domestic oil production will be a key trigger for the dynamics of the WTI oil price. If domestic production maintains unchanged at 12 million bpd and does not reach new heights, WTI oil will likely settle over $120.
