With WTI and Brent Crude Futures closing today at $87.54 (+0.98%) and $90.60 (+0.62%), respectively, it marks crude oil’s highest closing price since the end of November 2022.

Oil stocks receive another boost tomorrow as the weekly U.S. inventory data is scheduled to be released at 4:30 pm EST. A survey by the Wall Street Journal is projecting U.S. crude stockpiles will drop by 2.1 million barrels.
