US West Coast imports of gasoline continued to rise for the week ended May 5, 2017. Navarik data indicates that there has been more than a 900,000 bbl year-over-year increase in the volume of gasoline to enter the PADD 5 market since the start of April. This has prompted importers on the western coast of Latin America to source from the US Gulf Coast instead of the usual US west coast route; PADD 3 exports to the west coast of Latin America have risen since April, while volumes out of PADD 5 are stable.
