US demand has been revised down by 120,000 b/d in 2021 and another 120,000 b/d in 2022, to account for products blended in exported crude oil — they are not consumed at home but exported as crude. OECD Asia adds nearly 200,000 b/d of demand, well ahead of Europe (plus 107,000 b/d), but also slightly above the US (plus 182,000 b/d). Headline inflation has already subsided in South Korea. Japan has been less successful at mitigating higher price levels.
