WTI vs. Brent = Brent wins
The proliferation of US domestic shale has led to swelling inventories of WTI in Cushing Oklahoma, thanks largely to American ingenuity in enhancing extraction technologies. Conversely, Brent crude (an easily accessible waterborne crude with global reach) is not subject to any downward pressure from such a large inventory supply increase. Brent crude does have exposure to the weak economies of Europe and also China, which continues to grow, albeit at a slower than expected rate of roughly 8%. This US revolution in energy independence has also led to a defined decrease in crude imports. The US is not using materially more crude, but simply sourcing what it needs domestically.
