The Energy Information Administration's (EIA) Heating Oil Stocks Change is an indirect measure of the US demand for refined petroleum products allowing for a short-term forecast of the US industry demand for crude oil. The indicator is included in the weekly report of the US Energy Information Administration.
If stocks grow faster (or are consumed slower) than expected, demand for refined petroleum products is considered to be low. Also, crude oil prices may temporarily drop slightly.
