Asia Naphtha/Gasoline-Gasoline lingers near October 2023 lows

Asia’s gasoline markets hovered near the lowest levels since October 2023 as slow demand concerns and a rise in Singapore stocks weighed on refining margins.

The crack held steady at $4.64 per barrel over Brent crude amid a lack of trades at the window.

Traders said the fall in gasoline crack is surprising during summers but it appears that demand has not surfaced according to expectations. Gasoline consumption typically goes up in summer due to driving demand.

Meanwhile, Singapore light distillate stocks rose to a two-week high of 14.697 million barrels in the week to May 29, Enterprise Singapore data showed.
