Shares of ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM), Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX), and Apache Corporation (NASDAQ: APA) are rocketing today, up 4.4%, 4.8%, and 8.2%, respectively, as of 1:40 p.m. EST. In today's oil price news, WTI crude oil prices and Brent crude are recovering from yesterday's drop, rising 2.2% each in the early afternoon. Energy investors are also taking heart today from the latest data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, which show that U.S. commercial crude oil stockpiles shrank by 0.7 million barrels in the week ended Nov. 27.
Shares of oil stocks, including ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM), Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX), and ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP), crashed sharply lower in Monday trading, ending the day down 5.1%, 7.1%, and 7.5%, respectively. In part, the share price declines can be traced back to declines in the price of oil -- as you'd expect -- with the cost of WTI crude falling 0.8% today, and Brent crude prices declining 1.2%. What's more, if you look closely you might notice that the price of oil is actually up -- not down -- nearly 5% over the past week.
