That was up 48% year to year.
EIA also reported exports last week rose by 760,000 b/d to 2.335 million b/d, putting them 68% above the year-ago number. The four-week export average was 1.705 million b/d.

Refiner and blender net production of propane and propylene rose by 88,000 bbl last week to 2.823 million b/d, up 14.6% from 2023.

The four-week average stood at 2.726 million b/d.
