U.S. Petroleum Weekly – May 20, 2010

Belisarius is kind of tied up with his day job in the last few days, so my posting is not as timely as usual.

Crude oil stocks and derivatives stocks were mostly unchanged for the week ending May 14.

Refinery utilization fell from88.4% to 87.9%.

Crude oil and petroleum product net imports were fell to 10.3 million barrels. All categories of petroleum stocks are still at extremely elevated levels.

So, the game is on. How low can it go?
