API: US petroleum demand down 26.7% in April
US petroleum demand, as measured by total domestic petroleum deliveries, decreased to 14.2 million b/d in April—a decrease of 26.7% from March and 29.4% compared with April 2019—the lowest for the month of April since 1970, according to the latest monthly statistics report of American Petroleum Institute (API).
The decrease in US petroleum demand reflected the escalation of stay-at-home orders to prevent transmission of COVID-19. Seasonal deliveries of residual fuel oil showed the only increase for the month. Transportation fuel deliveries fell across the board, but fuels were affected to varied extents. Jet fuel was the most adversely affected, followed by gasoline and diesel/distillates. Naphtha/gasoil used in refining and petrochemicals decreased by relatively less. In more than 4 decades of API publishing this report, April 2020 stands out for its singular weaknesses.
