Last update: May 13, 2020, 10:47 EDT


This chart shows U.S. weekly inventory of commercial crude oil (measured in million barrels). The chart also displays 5-year average inventory (light orange dashed curve) and 52-week average stocks (light cyan dotted curve).

  • Crude Oil - a mixture of hydrocarbons that exists in liquid phase in natural underground reservoirs and remains liquid at atmospheric pressure after passing through surface separating facilities. Depending upon the characteristics of the crude stream, it may also include:
    • small amounts of hydrocarbons that exist in gaseous phase in natural underground reservoirs but are liquid at atmospheric pressure after being recovered from oil well (casinghead) gas in lease separators and are subsequently commingled with the crude stream without being separately measured. Lease condensate recovered as a liquid from natural gas wells in lease or field separation facilities and later mixed into the crude stream is also included;
    • small amounts of nonhydrocarbons produced with the oil, such as sulfur and various metals;
    • drip gases, and liquid hydrocarbons produced from tar sands, oil sands, gilsonite, and oil shale.

Stocks include those domestic and customs-cleared foreign stocks held at, or in transit to, refineries and bulk terminals, and stocks in pipelines. All stock levels are as of the end of the period.

Historical data are available from January 1, 2010.
