December RBOB had a gap higher open Thursday evening and grinded higher during the initial morning hours. Reports of a refinery closure in the US Midwest during yesterday's session helped stabilize the early selling pressure. Some traders also noted that the RBOB market might have become technically oversold after a sharp 5.5% decline from last Thursday's high into yesterday's low. Despite EIA data earlier this week that showed a larger than expected build in US gasoline supplies, they remain more than 4% below year ago levels.
