NEW YORK (DTN) -- The U.S. Energy Information Administration's latest weekly report shows ethanol supply in the United States up 500,000 bbl or 2.2% to 23.5 million bbl during the week-ended Feb. 2, moving closer to the record high of 23.8 million bbl registered just two weeks prior, while up 1.4 million bbl or 6.3% against year prior.

The stock build was concentrated in the PADD 1 East Coast according to Wednesday's report, where supply surged 500,000 or 6.7% to 8.0 million bbl. Ethanol supply in the PADD 2 Midwest increased 200,000 bbl, or 2.4% each to 8.4 million, which was offset by a 200,000 bbl, or 4.8% draw in PADD 3 Gulf Coast stocks to 4.0 million bbl. Likewise, a 100,000 bbl increase in the PADD 4 Rocky Mountain region to 400,000 bbl compared with a 100,000 bbl decline in PADD 5 West Coast inventory.
