U.S. Gulf Coast Crude Imports Fall to Lowest Weekly Level: Chart

Blame tropical storm Hermine for the sharp decline in imports in the Gulf Coast. The storm disrupted shipments, pushing imports to the lowest level since at least 1990 to 2.48 million barrels per day in the period ended Sept. 2, according to preliminary data from the Energy Information Administration. Total U.S. imports fell 21 percent during the same period, to 7.1 million barrels per day.
