Crude prices head south further in Asia on API build in crude inventories

On Wednesday, crude dipped further in Asia because industry data cast a shadow on American demand prospects after inventories suddenly inched up.

June delivery crude futures went down 0.97%, trading at $48.19 in New York, following the API figures. Brent futures lost 0.81%, being worth $51.23 a barrel in London.

American crude inventories inched up 882,000 barrels at the end of the previous week, as the American Petroleum Institute informed on Tuesday. It’s compared to a slide of 2.3 million barrels observed and the previous week's data, which showed a 5.789 million barrels dip.

Distillate stocks soared 1.79 million barrels, while gasoline supplies dipped 1.78 million barrels. Then, supplies at Cushing, Oklahoma, edged down by 540,000 barrels. Financial experts expected a 1.050 million barrels descend in distillates and also an 731,000 barrels sag in gasoline supplies.
