Prices rebounded 2.3 percent on Wednesday from the lowest level in more than a year after government data signaled steady fuel demand with declines in gasoline and distillate inventories even as crude stockpiles rose for a ninth straight week. Meanwhile, Trump in his tweet thanked Saudi Arabia for lower oil prices, but also said “let’s go lower!”
