The IEA, in their weekly report Wednesday, said that U.S. oil supplies decreased by 800,000 to 377.4 million barrels. While the decline was under the 1.1 million barrels projected by analysts, it marked the third consecutive week in which inventories have fallen.

The IEA also reported last week that they predict global oil demand to rise by 1 million barrels a day in 2013. A report released last week showed that the IEA forecasts global oil demand in 2013 to average 90.9 barrels a day, a 1.1 percent increase. While demand is on the rise it is still "well below" the levels seen before the start of the financial crisis.
