March RBOB prices trended higher during the overnight and early morning hours but remained trapped inside of Friday's wide-range session. Some traders pointed to a positive risk-on attitude this morning as a force that could be offering the early lift. The gasoline market might also be getting an upside lift from the latest Lundberg Survey that showed a $0.035 gain in prices over the last two weeks. Meanwhile, the fundamental situation for US gasoline demand remains weak, evidenced by last week's EIA report that showed a weekly demand running nearly 9.0% below year ago levels.
