Jet: Tight Chicago strongest in six months
June 30, 2016
S&P Global Platts assessed Chicago jet fuel up 4.75 cents to the NYMEX August ULSD futures contract plus 5.5 cents/gal, for an outright price of $1.5507/gal, on Thursday, as sources said barrels have become scarce in the region.
"Chicago strength coming from continued spec issues and pipeline allocation," said a Midwest jet broker. "It has become very challenging to supply jet to that region."
