US Total Gasoline Retail Sales by Refiners

That number has been meaningless to almost everyone for a very long time. Refineries primarily make gasoline blending product that is mixed and then sold by another company. Very little product is sold directly by the refinery to the end users.

For example, your link shows 30.5 million GALLONS per day sold in September. In September, the entire US sold 8.575 millon BARRELS of gasoline or over 360 million GALLONS. Your link is to only 1/12th of the US sales.

While there has been a drop in demand, it is not as significant as the Refiner Sales would indicate.
