OK, but that was seen as a momentary high point. Since then it has been still quite high. Additionally trend lines point to higher prices for at least the next few months. And why not, the world crude market sees that the current administration is not going to open up US and Canada supplies so they are safe to charge hwatever thy choose. If we want crude, and it's products, to come down the US needs to signal the world that we are going to take charge of our own crude supplies. That will makew thjem think and likely but significant downward pressure on the global producers. Look at the chart from statistica to see tha bigger picture and trend lines.
