by Nick Cunningham
18 Jul 2019 at 4:00pm
Oil prices plunged again on Thursday, dragged down by fears of slowing demand. An unexpected increase in inventories underscored the downside risk to oil prices. The EIA reported a drawdown in crude stocks, but a huge 9.25 million barrel combined increase in gasoline and diesel inventories, which surprised traders. Also, gasoline demand plunged by 0.5 mb/d in the week ending on July 12, although week-to-week changes are typical and make the data a bit noisy. Crude prices sold off on the news, falling by nearly 3 percent on Thursday. The data release?

Yet,?

The Biggest Challenges Facing America?s Nuclear Sector
by Haley Zaremba
18 Jul 2019 at 10:00am
In the United States, the common sentiment about the nuclear industry is that it is doomed. As cheap natural gas prices out nuclear, more and more plants are going offline, and many of those that are hanging on are doing so in large part thanks to sizeable government subsidies. And then there is the crushing cost of nuclear waste management that is already weighing on taxpayers and will only get worse. But this is not the whole story. While nuclear is in decline in the United States, it is still going strong worldwide, with countries like China?

by Nick Cunningham
18 Jul 2019 at 9:00am
The downstream refining sector has rebounded a bit, shrugging off the glut of gasoline seen earlier this year. But another product surplus could be looming in the second half of 2019 and into 2020. Refiners worked at elevated levels last year, helping to produce a global gasoline surplus that ran into the early part of this year.
