Energy Up As Oil, Natural Gas Futures, Surge -- Energy Roundup

03/17/2022 | 03:30pm

Shares of energy companies rallied as oil prices rebounded from a recent correction.

Oil futures rose by more than 8% in New York to $102.98 a barrel as the siege of key Ukrainian port Mariupol intensified, dashing hopes of progress in peace negotiations.

Gains in some refined products were even stronger. Diesel futures rose almost 13% to $3.50 a gallon after surprisingly weak supply data in key fuel hub Singapore, while U.S supplies of the distillate remain near eight-year lows.

Natural gas futures also surged, rising 5% to just under $5 a million British thermal units in the wake of stockpile data and forecasts for more cool weather.
