A number of analysts expected a decline of 1.4 million barrels, while others forecasted a drop of 2.7 million barrels. On the contrary, in Cushing, oil reserves increased by 330 thousand barrels. The level of production in the United States remained at the same level, 11.7 million barrels per day.

Current support remains at $59.50, while analysts predict a decrease to $59.10. Experts believe that further situation will depend on the market news and statistics.
