美国明年柴油需求或将增加

中国石化新闻网讯 据国外媒体9月27日休斯敦报道,美国国内货运正在显示出过去18个月来首次持续增长的迹象,这种持续增加应该支持明年美国柴油消费的增加。

根据美国交通统计局(BTS)日前公布的统计数据,美国7月份货运量再创历史新高,超过了2014年12月份创下的前一个最高货运量。

BTS的货运服务指数在萎靡不振或下降一年多以后连续4个月出现了增长。货运服务指数涉及卡车、铁路和驳船以及航空货运和管道的运动。

3月和7月之间的4个环比增长是2014年12月以来最长系列的完整涨势以及是2013年2月以来在任何可比较时期的最快总增长。

根据BTS,导致7月份异常大月度增长的主要原因是与油气钻井、公用事业部门以及制造业有关的卡车和铁路运输的大幅增加。

U.S. Diesel Demand to Rise as Freight, Drilling Revive

WENews.com/September 27, 2016/Houston

Freight movements across the United States are showing signs of sustained growth for the first time in 18 months, which should support increases in diesel consumption in 2017.

Freight volumes hit a record in July, passing the previous peak set back in December 2014, according to the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics.

The Bureau's freight transportation services index has risen for four consecutive months, after flat-lining or falling for more than a year.

The index is a composite capturing movements by truck, railroad and barge as well as air cargo and pipelines.

The four month-to-month increases between March and July were the longest series of unbroken gains since December 2014 and the fastest overall rise in any comparable period since February 2013.

The unusually large monthly gain during July was driven by sharp increases in movements by truck and train, linked to growth in oil and gas drilling, the utility sector, and manufacturing, according to BTS.
