Market

WTI is sitting at $68.65 at the time of writing this, it is down $2.78 from where it was from our last newsletter on July 19th. Brent is currently going for $72.56. One of the biggest pieces of news over this last month is that the U.S Department of Interior will restart oil and gas leasing in federally managed waters and onshore in September. Elsewhere in the world the delta variant is still reeking havok on summer demand but analysts are saying that it is set for more than a 50% rally going forward.
