Rather than transporting about 640,000 barrels of oil a day from Prudhoe Bay to the port at Valdez, Alaska, the pipeline is moving about 400,000 barrels per day. At Valdez, the oil flows into storage tanks for loading onto tankers bound for West Coast refineries.

"Stronger fuel demand tells us a recovery is underway." Those are the words of API's Chief Economist John Felmy today, describing the good news in API's Monthly Statistical Report for November. The report shows that U.S. petroleum deliveries (a measure of demand) climbed 6.5 percent last month over November 2009. The increase was the largest year-to-year increase for any month in 2010.
