Oil just had its first weekly decline in a month, breaking a rally in crude prices. A bit of context: After what's happened over the last year, "rally" seems a bit of an overstatement. 

One big factor that may be driving prices down this week: The U.S. is pumping so much oil it's running out of places to stash it.
