Weekly US ethanol update

  • EIA reported weekly US ethanol production decreased 10,000 barrels per day and stocks up 314,000 barrels. A Bloomberg survey called for weekly US ethanol production to decrease 8,000 barrels per day and stocks to increase 132,000 barrels, so estimates were somewhat inline.
  • US gasoline stocks decreased for the fifth week in a row.
  • US ethanol blend rate into finished motor gasoline fell to 90.8% from 91.4% last week. 
  • The US ethanol-RBOB spread is narrowing.
  • See our YTD % chart on major ethanol related commodities below.
