Redefining Supply and Demand

“Oil prices rose as traders bet U.S. crude supplies are near a peak.” What kind of reasoning is that?

Betting that near-record supplies won’t go higher, so prices go up? There’s so much crude people aren’t looking for more; just places to put what they’ve got. That causes prices to rise? Not that.

Iran pirating oil at Hormuz. Yeah, that.
