    Summary of Weekly Petroleum Data for the Week Ending August 24, 2007

    U.S. crude oil refinery inputs averaged nearly 15.5 million barrels per day
    during the week ending August 24, down 258,000 barrels per day from the previous
    week's average. Refineries operated at 90.3 percent of their operable capacity
    last week. Gasoline production fell compared to the previous week, averaging
    nearly 9.1 million barrels per day. Distillate fuel production also declined,
    averaging nearly 4.2 million barrels per day.

    U.S. crude oil imports averaged over 9.8 million barrels per day last week, down
    993,000 barrels per day from the previous week. Over the last four weeks, crude
    oil imports have averaged over 10.1 million barrels per day, or 342,000 barrels
    per day less than averaged over the same four-week period last year. Total
    motor gasoline imports (including both finished gasoline and gasoline blending
    components) last week averaged 993,000 barrels per day. Distillate fuel imports
    averaged 320,000 barrels per day last week.

    U.S. commercial crude oil inventories (excluding those in the Strategic
    Petroleum Reserve) fell by 3.5 million barrels compared to the previous week.
    However, at 333.6 million barrels, U.S. crude oil inventories remain well above
    the upper end of the average range for this time of year. Total motor gasoline
    inventories dropped by 3.6 million barrels last week, and are well below the
    lower end of the average range. Declines were seen in inventories for both
    finished gasoline and gasoline blending components. Distillate fuel inventories
    increased by 0.9 million barrels, and are in the middle of the average range for
    this time of year. Propane/propylene inventories increased 0.9 million barrels
    last week. Total commercial petroleum inventories declined by 2.2 million
    barrels last week, but remain in the upper half of the average range for this
    time of year.

    Total products supplied over the last four-week period has averaged 21.2 million
    barrels per day, or relatively the same compared to the similar period last
    year. Over the last four weeks, motor gasoline demand has averaged over 9.6
    million barrels per day, or 0.5 percent above the same period last year.
    Distillate fuel demand has averaged nearly 4.2 million barrels per day over the
    last four weeks, up 0.7 percent compared to the same period last year. Jet fuel
    demand is down 1.8 percent over the last four weeks compared to the same four-
    week period last year.
