US oil and fuel supplies stiffen as oil prices continue to spike     

The oil prices in the United States have spiked this week, after supplies shortened due to the energy minister of Saudi giving a warning. 

Earlier this week, industry data in the USA showed that, crude oil and fuel in the country had fallen extensively.  According to data from the American Petroleum Institute, the week that ended on May 19, showed a decreased amount of crude inventories by almost 6.8 million barrels, this was cited on Tuesday, by market sources. The data further showed inventories fall by roughly 1.8 million for distillate, while those of gasoline fell by about 6.4 million.

The United States' petrol stockpiles would have decreased for the third consecutive week to their lowest levels, since before Memorial Day, 2014. If statistics from the Energy Information Administration set to be released on Wednesday, sanctions the API estimates.

In the meantime, this month sees the start of certain OPEC countries' output cuts. Increased concern over supply shortage was caused, after Saudi Arabia's energy minister warned short sellers, who were wagering that prices will fall to "watch out".

The above stated was taken as a sign that, during the meeting on June 4th, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies would consider cutting down on outputs further more.

As the deadline to increase the government's $31.4 trillion borrowing cap or risk default approached, another round of debt ceiling negotiations came to an end on Tuesday with no signs of progress.
