In speaking with before the Atlanta Roteray Club Monday, the Atlanta Federal Reserve President Raphael Bostic said inflation is on track towards a 2% goal, but the Fed would have to remain "diligent and short run attentive" throughout the year, Bloomberg reported.
Speaking to the Atlanta Rotary Club, Bostic said he was not ready to declare victory quite yet, and policy would have to remain restrictive through the end of the year, according to the Benzinga newswire. He saw two 0.25 reductions in the target interest rate over that time, but with inflation still above target and employment slowing, they would have to remain cautious.
US Oil Production Set to Rise to a Record in 2024, the Energy Information Administration Says
The Energy Information Administration on Tuesday said it expects to record US oil production in 2024 and even higher next year.
In its influential monthly Short-Term Energy Outlook, the agency expects US oil output to average a record 13.2 million barrels per day this year, rising to 13.4 million bpd in 2025.

Our forecast of crude oil production in the United States reaches 13.2 million barrels per day (b/d) in 2024 and more than 13.4 million b/d in 2025, both of which would be new records. Production growth continues over the next two years, driven by increases in efficiency. However, growth slows because of fewer active drilling rigs," the EIA noted.
Global oil and gas production is expected to rise by 0.6 million bpd this year, down from a rise of 1.7 million bpd in 2023, while the agency expects output growth of 1.6 million bpd in 2025.
In our forecast, global liquid fuels production growth slows in 2024 because of both OPEC+ production cuts and slowing non-OPEC growth. OPEC+ crude oil production declines by 0.6 million b/d in our forecast for 2024, which is offset by 1.2 million b/d of production growth outside of the group," the study said.
However, the EIA expects global demand to rise by 1.4 million bpd this year and 1.2 million bpd next year.
We expect that OPEC+ production cuts will lead to global oil inventory withdrawals of 0.8 million b/d on average in 1Q24. After a period of relative balance from 2Q24 through 1Q25, we expect global oil inventories will build over the final three quarter of 2024 as slowing demand growth once again is outpaced by rising supply growth," the EIA said.
