New York Gasoline Drops as Sunoco Restarts Catalytic Cracker

Aug. 31 (Bloomberg) -- New York gasoline weakened as Sunoco Inc. was said to restart a key gasoline-making unit at its Philadelphia refinery.

Catalytic cracker 1232, which was shut because of a wet-gas-compressor malfunction late Aug. 29, is operating at reduced rates, said a person familiar with the situation who declined to be identified because the information isn’t public.

The discount for conventional, 87-octane gasoline in New York Harbor widened 2.25 cents to 4.75 cents a gallon at 3:17 p.m. in New York. Prompt delivery rose 1.37 cents to $2.9845 a gallon.

The same fuel in the Gulf Coast weakened 0.62 cent to a premium of 4.88 cents a gallon versus futures.

Total U.S. gasoline stockpiles fell 2.8 million barrels to 208.6 million last week, according to the Energy Department. Analysts estimated the government report would show a decline of 1.05 million barrels, according to a Bloomberg survey.
