According to the latest Energy Information Administration data analyzed by the Renewable Fuels Association, ethanol production declined the first week of the new year to the smallest volume in 37 weeks at an average of 1.000 million barrels per day (b/d)—or 42.00 million gallons daily. The four-week average for ethanol production settled lower at 1.025 million b/d for an annualized rate of 15.71 billion gallons.

For the last week of 2018, ending on December 28, ethanol production was the lowest volume in 11 weeks at an average of 1.011 million barrels per day (b/d)—or 42.46 million gallons daily. The four-week average for ethanol production softened at 1.036 million b/d for an annualized rate of 15.88 billion gallons.

Of course, both of those weeks included holidays when production is normally lower.
