The markets for trading "Paper Oil Futures" are completely disconnected from the real world prices that real oil is bought and sold at. Futures are merely a betting parlor.

So I would imagine the price of oil futures is primarily affected by a large number of factors which are completely unrelated to the real world supply and demand for oil.
