Biggest US gasoline pipeline sees demand fall to multiyear low

Demand to ship gasoline on Line 1 of the Colonial Pipeline, the largest US gasoline pipeline, has fallen below its 1.3 million-barrel-per-day capacity for the first time in six years even though US gasoline demand usually peaks during summer. “The only reason they wouldn’t be full is clearly that inventory levels are high enough that there is no incentive to move product to New York,” said Sandy Fielden, Morningstar’s director of oil and products research.
