The latest EIA energy report lists US Total Petroleum Oil Stocks (excluding SPR) at 1.45 billion barrels as of June 19, 2020 (green arrow).  As of March 13, 2020 (red arrow), the beginning of the US stay-at-home orders in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Total Petroleum Stocks were at 1.26 billion barrels.  In the course of about four months, there has been a record increase in stocks to an all-time record high.  Such is the impact of the pandemic on the collapse of demand for petroleum products.  Unfortunately, we believe these record level stocks will remain in the near future, pressuring prices of most petroleum products.
