Products: Market overview
US demand for gasoline has increased so far in 2013, becoming more in line with demand in 2012.
Meanwhile, retail gasoline prices peaked in February and are not expected to move higher than the average of $3.79/gal, pending any Atlantic hurricanes and production disruptions along the US Gulf Coast.
Distillate demand for products such as heating oil, ultra-low sulphur diesel and jet fuel has been healthy in 2013 compared with 2012.
Demand for naphtha remains suppressed in the US despite higher demand for use in gasoline blending during the busy summer travel season.
Shale developments have increased stockpiles of ethane and other natural gas liquids (NGLs), weakening the demand for use in cracking in the US.
