This is an ominous sign
In August, New York Harbor closed to ships delivering gasoline because there was nowhere to put it. When the Colonial Pipeline broke, Gasoline to New York stopped. Being on the far end, the terminals along the route (like Charlotte) likely are drawing most of the flow. New York gets gasoline from Europe, Canada, a refinery in Philadelphia and a pipeline from Indiana. They are not as dependent on a single pipeline as Atlanta and North Carolina.
Apparently, China has enough refining capacity to refine gasoline for export – 300,000 barrels a day. Sending a tanker through the expanded Panama Canal from China to New York City is curious. Is this gasoline refined from crude coming from Russia or from storage when China was paying $140 a barrel?
