Supply crunch pushes crude oil to record ninth straight weekly gain
$Crude Oil Future Main(SEP2)(CLmain.US)$ U.S. crude oil futures closed above $83/bbl in New York for the ninth straight weekly increase, the longest such winning streak since at least 1983, as rising consumption increasingly races ahead of supply.
WTI crude for December delivery closed +1.5% to settle at $83.76/bbl, and December Brent crude finished +1.1% at $85.53/bbl.
The front-month WTI contract jumped 2.6% for the week, while Brent posted a 0.9% weekly increase, but it was the ninth straight winning week for both benchmarks.

Stockpiles at the Cushing storage hub, the biggest such facility in the U.S., are draining to critically low levels that could push crude prices even higher.
