Diesel: US Prime Supplier Sales


Here is the entire data series for diesel prime supplier sales in the USA, courtesy of the EIA. This took a little bit to cobble together, as the changing sulfur regulations change the data series over time.

The data is reported monthly, in the form of the average daily sales of diesel, so if we see a value of 100,000 that is 100 million gallons per day in a particular month. I've plotted up the monthly values and the 12 month moving average which will smooth out the heavy seasonality we observe.
