Children's Bathrobes, Nightgowns Recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled thousands of children’s bathrobes and nightgowns as they violated Federal Flammability Standards and posed a risk of causing burn injuries to children.

The regulator has issued a recall of about 4,500 FunnyPaja children’s bathrobes, about 5,300 Arshiner children’s nightgowns and about 760 Goumi’s children’s robes.

Crude Oil Futures Settle Modestly Higher After IEA Forecasts Record Demand

Crude oil futures settled modestly higher on Friday, lifted by the International Energy Agency’s forecast that global crude demand will grow to a record 101.9 million barrels per day this year.

West Texas Intermediate Crude oil futures for May ended higher by $0.36 or about 0.4% at $82.52 a barrel.

Brent crude futures were up $0.16 or 0.19% at $86.25 a barrel a little while ago.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) said in its monthly oil market report that oil demand will grow by 2 million barrels per day in 2023, driven mostly by stronger Chinese consumption after the lifting of COVID restrictions.

The IEA expects supply to remain tight, and sees a drop of 400,000 barrels per day by the end of the year.

Earlier this week, data from China showed that the world’s second largest economy saw its crude oil imports rise by 12.4 million barrels per day in March, up from 10.7 million barrels in February. The March volume was the largest since June 2020.

Data from Baker Hughes showed the total number of total active drilling rigs in the United States fell by 3 this week, after falling 4 last week.
