The left axis of the chart is intentionally inverted because it is assumed (but not asserted) that negative difference in storage inventory (i.e, "storage deficit") should exert an upward pressure on prices, while positive difference in storage inventory (i.e., "storage surplus") should exert a downward pressure on prices.
