U.S. crude oil refinery inputs averaged 16.4 million barrels per day during the week ending September 16, 2022 which was 333,000 barrels per day more than the previous week’s average.
Refineries operated at 93.6% of their operable capacity last week.
> Gasoline production increased last week, averaging 9.5 million barrels per day.
> Distillate fuel production increased last week, averaging 5.2 million barrels per day.

U.S. crude oil imports averaged 6.9 million barrels per day last week, increased by 1.2 million barrels per day from the previous week. < This is why crude oil inventories increased.
> Over the past four weeks, crude oil imports averaged about 6.4 million barrels per day, 4.5% more than the same four-week period last year.
> Total motor gasoline imports (including both finished gasoline and gasoline blending components) last week averaged 775,000 barrels per day, and distillate fuel imports averaged 107,000 barrels per day.

Focus on the inventory deficits to the 5-year average.

On tomorrow's live webinar I will be joined by two oil and gas market experts, John Saucer and Zane Curry from Mobius Risk Group.

I have seen the slides they are going to speak from. You do not want to miss this opportunity to learn more about all of the things that are impacting the global oil market. The oil market is tight today and likely to be VERY TIGHT by year-end.

Today we are in the "Shoulder Season" when supply MUST be higher than demand so we can build up refined product inventories to get us through the winter. As you can see from EIA's report, the refiners have made some progress, but distillate inventories (diesel and heating oil) are still way below where they need to be.

You must register on the EPG website home page if you wish to attend the live webinar.
