gasoline volume from Europe to the United States decreased in December, as trade profits fell to the lowest level in six weeks. On December 6, gasoline in the United States was 1.1 cents cheaper than that in Europe. The difference between the gasoline futures delivered in New York port and the benchmark 95 octane gasoline in Amsterdam Rotterdam Antwerp region is the largest discount since October 21. On November 29, gasoline in the United States was 10.3 cents per gallon more expensive than that in Europe, the largest liter of water since August 9

however, the rise in gasoline in the United States in November was short-lived, and the demand for gasoline in the United States was lower than that in the same period last year. According to the latest statistics of the U.S. energy information administration, the average daily gasoline demand in the United States for the four weeks ended December 3 was 8.955 million barrels, which was 0.7% lower than that of last year, but the test results sometimes did not reflect the quality of products in actual use

gasoline imports from Europe tripled in November, as U.S. gasoline inventories fell to the lowest level in a year. But recently, the seasonal overhaul of American refineries has ended, the crude oil processing volume has increased, and the gasoline inventory has also increased unexpectedly.

At the same time, shipping costs are also rising. On December 6, the world tanker freight rate from Europe to the Atlantic coast of the United States was 214.17, the highest level since July 21. This is because crude oil rose to increase the cost of shipping fuel
