Commentary on crude oil prices has not been as prevalent lately even though gasoline prices continue to climb. Lets take a quick look at where crude oil is at the moment.
Below is the 1 year chart for Brent crude oil. As you can see...crude oil had a tumultuous spring and summer capped by a relatively boring winter and fall. After averaging around $108 per barrel, all the way till Feb, it jumped quickly to almost $127 per barrel before completely reversing itself and dropping all the way to $90 per barrel. It has since recovered and is now close to both the 50 DMA and 200 DMA of $115 per barrel.
Really there isn't much direction here from what I can see in terms of whether it'll drop or climb back up as that's driven by macro factors. There's a slight bias to an upward trend from technicals but global macro picture still remains weak. In any case, the oil picture looks relatively uneventful for the moment.
