Even though the Dow hit 20,000 on Wednesday, oil prices were falling.
Oil prices dropped after the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported a 2.8 million-barrel-build in crude inventories last week. Gasoline inventories also rose. U.S. benchmark WTI crude for March delivery fell to $52 a barrel, while Brent crude futures dropped to $55 a barrel.
