Bloomberg reported that U.S. Gulf Coast oil premiums dropped after the gap between West Texas Intermediate and Brent crude narrowed 20 cents.

As quoted in the market news:

Brent’s premium over WTI, based on June futures prices, narrowed 20 cents to $15.08 a barrel at 2:09 p.m. in New York. When Brent decreases versus WTI, it typically diminishes the value of low-sulfur U.S. grades that compete with West African oil priced against the European benchmark.
