The Energy Information Administration on Wednesday reported that oil production in the U.S. was at its highest level since December 1996 reaching 6.52 million barrels a day last week, sending oil futures down as much as 3.9 percent. For the week ending September 28 fuel demand had also dropped to 18.3 million barrels a day, a 5 month low.

"The inventory numbers were rather neutral but demand looks pretty awful," said Michael Lynch, president of Strategic Energy & Economic Research. "A weak economy and falling demand will probably leave us with fuller oil tanks in the months to come."
