Brent closed last night down $0.41 to $52.34 and WTI had no change at $47.29. We've been stuck in a range between $50 and $53.00 for what seems like an eternity. It's not like there haven't been stimuli to break us out of this range either. Of course, more recently we have had the tragic Hurricane Harvey. This caused an initial spike in RBOB, but that is now back down to exactly the same level we were on 25 August (the day before the storm hit Texas). Other factors have also been there to look at breaking crude out of this range - the US dollar, for example, Libya declaring force majeure one minute then calling it off the next, North Korea and what will happen there, OPEC ministers saying that the agreement may or may not be extended in November. All in all, it has been a fairly active summer for geopolitical factors that, usually, would have a fairly dramatic effect on flat price. But not this year. No no no.
