After six months of daily ethanol production topping a million barrels a day, the streak finally came to an end two weeks ago, according to the latest analysis of EIA data from the Renewable Fuels Association.

Ethanol production dropped below a million barrels to its lowest level since October to 986,000 barrels in the week ended on April 7. Last week, ethanol production recovered some, averaging 993,000 barrels per day or 41.71 million gallons daily. The four-week average for ethanol production slipped to 1.01 million b/d for an annualized rate of 15.53 billion gallons.
