SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — Oil futures fell Wednesday as traders braced for government data that are likely to show a sizable climb in last week’s supplies after a trade group reported an increase that was nearly double what analysts had anticipated.

Disappointing growth in U.S. private-sector payrolls also weighed on sentiment.

Crude for May delivery /quotes/zigman/2291775 CLK3 -0.73% fell 51 cents, or 0.6%, to $96.68 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

The loss came after the American Petroleum Institute said late Tuesday that crude supplies rose 4.7 million barrels in the week ended March 29. Analysts had expected a climb of 2.5 million barrels, according to a Platts survey of analysts.

51 cents is not a 'fall'. When it goes down by several dollars I might consider it.

Prices are up. Prices are down. It is all driven by speculation. Wonder what the next crisis will be that will be the "reason" for a price hike.

However, prices at the pump in my area have not changed much at all in the last month.

Part of the game of speculation, to have winners you have to have losers.

Good. Hope the speculators' losses go the other way.
