The four-week average for ethanol production stood at an unprecedented 1.054 million b/d for an annualized rate of 16.16 billion gallonsStocks of ethanol stood at 21.9 million barrels. That is a 0.7% increase from last week.

Imports of ethanol were zero b/d for the 23rd straight week. Gasoline demand for the week averaged 349.0 million gallons (8.310 million barrels) daily. Refiner/blender input of ethanol averaged 837,000 b/d, meaning gasoline delivered to the market contained an average of 10.07% ethanol.
