HOUSTON, March 6, 2019 (PCW) -- US nonfuel use propylene inventories edged lower by 24,000 barrels (-0.4%) to 6.598 million barrels last week, ending a record-setting run of three consecutive weekly increases, the EIA said today. It was only the second inventory draw in the past twelve weeks, during which time inventories have added more than 2 million barrels.
