OIL INVENTORIES SHOULD BE BASED ON MARGINS, SUPPLY RELIABILITY

U.S. oil inventories have plummeted to their lowest recorded levels this year, leading industry observers to conclude that refiners have adopted new just-in-time (JIT) inventory policies. The authors submit that the shift towards reduced oil inventories is not related to a concerted adoption of JIT by U.S. refiners, and that oil inventory management decisions should instead be based on refining margins and supply reliability.
