Low fuel inventories cause special concern in US Northeast

For a number of factors, including the conflict in Ukraine, fuel supplies are fewer than usual throughout the nation. But in the Northeast, it's the worst.

According to a report by the Department of Energy, the price of diesel fuel and heating oil, which are included.

the distillate category, is 63% lower than the five-year average in New England and 58% lower than the same average from Maryland to New York.

The organisation reported that while gasoline supplies are not as poor, they are still at their lowest levels in almost a decade along the entire East Coast.

While other regions rely more on natural gas and electricity to heat homes in the winter, the Northeast mainly relies on heating oil.

Moreover, since the majority of fuel consumed from the Middle Atlantic states to Maine originates from Gulf Coast refineries,

a strong weather event might cause difficulties, according to energy officials.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has forecast an active hurricane season.
