New Stock Ranges
Released: December 21, 2011
EIA has recently changed methodology for developing the 5-year high/low stock ranges depicted in Figures 1 through 6 of the Weekly Petroleum Status Report (WPSR). This new methodology uses the highest and lowest weekly stock levels over the last five years to develop an inventory range band for each product, in total and by region. WPSR users can use these inventory ranges to compare current weekly petroleum stocks relative to recent historic levels.
