U.S. PETROLEUM PRODUCTS CONSUMPTION SLIPS

Petroleum products deliveries in the U.S. fell slightly more than 4% in the first 6 months of 1991, compared with 1990, the American Petroleum Institute reported last week. API pegged the slide at 4.1%, the largest decline for a 6 month period since 1983. API said the sluggish U.S. economy caused petroleum deliveries to average 16.322 million b/d this January-June vs. 17.012 million b/d in the same period a year ago.
