April RBOB prices traded fractionally higher during the initial morning hours as they corrected Thursday's late day developments. Some players noted that there could be some of the residual support in the gasoline market from yesterday's EIA report that showed an unexpected inventory decline on the week. Gasoline stocks fell by 2.798 million barrels, which was quite different than expectations for a 250,000 barrel build. There was a notable pickup in US gasoline demand of 291,000 barrels per day to 9.101 million. Additionally, a significant decline in gasoline imports of 127,000 barrels per day to 808,000 also contributed to the surprise draw. Average total gasoline demand for the past four weeks was up 0.06% compared to last year.
