Ethanol output hits 5-month low

03/14/2012 @ 11:11am

U.S. weekly ethanol production falls to a five-month low, but stockpiles remain large. US EIA reports output of 892,000 barrels/day in week ended March 9, down from 906,000 the prior week.

Weekly production down 7.3% from start of the year, and hasn't been this low since the first week of October, as producers respond to poor margins and a supply glut.

So far, the cuts have done little to fix the glut, as EIA reports stockpiles of 22.0M barrels, down slightly from 22.1M the prior week, but up 23% since start of the year.
