    Been having huge draws on Crude and here we sit under $48. Today’s action was extreme chop up and down 50 cents. Big bets on again for a big draw feels like


    Big product builds, smaller Cushing – prompt down 30 cents in what looks like a tired market. Confirmation tomorrow and a smaller crude draw will be toxic

    average. Refineries operated at 95.4% of their operable capacity last week. Gasoline

    U.S. crude oil imports averaged 8.8 million barrels per day last week, up by 664,000
    barrels per day from the previous week. Over the last four weeks, crude oil imports
    averaged over 8.2 million barrels per day, 3.1% below the same four-week period last

    barrels, U.S. crude oil inventories are in the upper half of the average range for this time

    are near the upper limit of the average range. Finished gasoline inventories increased

    gasoline product supplied averaged 9.7 million barrels per day, down by 0.4% from the
    same period last year. Distillate fuel product supplied averaged over 4.2 million barrels
    per day over the last four weeks, up by 14.4% from the same period last year. Jet fuel
    product supplied is up 1.3% compared to the same four-week period last year.


    API and EIA matched on Crude but look at those products – true to form …


    This; US crude imports,
    Saudi Arabia : 944kbpd (previous week 813),
    Iraq 685kbpd (716),
    Venezuela 987kbpd (648),
    Nigeria 400kbpd (214k)-EIA

    What was that about cutting Exports KSA?


    FILL UP YOUR TANKS TODAY …Just in case worse case scenario of some refinery or Gulf coast operations shutdowns occur for safety reasons. Prices sometimes spike a dime or more per gallon when storms impact the area .. Like a cat with 9 lives — old HARVEY has re-emerged from shadows — right after the great eclipse


    We are prepping here – generator ready

    TS Harvey inbound to USGC – read more about refineries & transportation fuels infrastructure in the path here #OOTT


    The Harvey effect more likely to be seen in following week EIA, next week’s will be for data ended tomorrow.


    IOW – FILL UP TODAY — if refineries are impacted by storm, gas will spike 10-20 cents nationwide or more & some areas could even “dry up” supply wise (like we saw with Katrina) … our Avalon has 18 gallon tank & am 3/4 mark — so I’m going top off in the next day or so


    Heading out to fill er up sir…
