WTI-Brent jump

While ICE Brent prompt price for August expiry jumped to 75 $/b on early Tuesday, the spread between US crude (light sweet WTI) and the ICE Brent benchmark narrowed spectacularly from –2.4 $/b to –2 $/b. Gasoil cracks and other refined product prices did not rally as quickly as crude prices, leaving the ICE gasoil crack to a paltry level of 5.8 $/b at the prompt, a level not experienced since mid-April.
