Meantime, the California Energy Commission reported a sixth-straight weekly gain in the state's mandated gasoline stock level. At 5.690 million bbl, up 6.2% from the week prior. January CARBOB in the basin tumbled a dime, indexed at a 10cts discount to February New York Mercantile Exchange RBOB futures while February CARBOB offers dropped more than a nickel, pegged 9cts over the March RBOB contract for any-month delivery. In San Francisco, February CARBOB traded at a 5cts discount to March RBOB futures. Dawn Gallagher, 1.732.531.4451,, (c) Copyright 2022 DTN, LLC. All rights reserved.
