Not sure what the question is here but here is what I would do.
Look at macro articles on Bloomberg, WSJ, PIMCO and Yahoo finance. When you find something on here of relative interest connect that article to xxx. Ex Please write about a recent news article that has interested you and how you feel that subject would relate to WTI Crude future prices"

There's articles about how the refineries in Texas were affected by recent hurricanes. what is the impact on supply? how does this relate to the futures pricing?

You can use this sort logic on companies PR issues (Google). New acquisitions (Amazon, whole foods, Kohls )
