Mirroring 34% May Auto Sales Results

Oil prices continue to rise, crossing the $72 a barrel mark. The current rise is attributed to the sharp fall in crude oil inventories reported by both the American Petroleum Institute and the Energy Department in contrast to expectations for a small increase. The International Energy Agency has raised its forecast for global oil demand saying that it believes the fall in consumption is ending. This echoes comments from the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s revised forecast. Yesterday China reported that auto sales in May rose 34% to 1.12 million units.
