Oil stockpiles rose 5.65 million barrels for the week ending July 4, the government agency said Wednesday. Analysts followed by had forecast a draw of 3.1 million barrels. Inventories fell 7.1 million barrels the previous week.

“The crude build of nearly 5.7 million barrels is more than a 180% reversal from the forecast draw of 3.1 million barrels. Yet, you have a near 5 million drop in gasoline stocks, a good part of which probably came from higher motor fuel processing by refiners prepping for 4th of July road travels,” said analyst Barani Krishnan. “It’s a question of what you want to focus — the shock of a crude build or just as impressive the draw on gasoline, and the price action suggests the market is having trouble deciding which way to go.”

Inventory at the , Oklahoma, storage facility rose 2.2 million barrels, more than the 1.5 million barrels forecast by analysts. fell 4.8 million barrels.

The weekly data comes after the estimated a 2 million build last week.

“If anything, the report is a tad bearish from the distillates build that came in at 3 million barrels more than expected,” Krishnan said. “That’s the sum effect, after considering the unchanged production at 11 million barrels per day, the 2 million-barrel build at Cushing and 60,000-barrel build on the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.”
