Propane:  Midwest inventory (or PADD II) is 11.9 million barrels--5.3% more than last week's inventory level and 17.8% more than last month's level with inventory levels continuing at the upper boundary of the normal range.  The Energy Information Administration estimates 25 million barrels in storage by the end of September to be a benchmark for the Midwest.  As of May 6, the national inventory level is 34.7 million barrels.  Industry observers believe a 60-million-barrel level for national inventory is adequate prior to the start of the heating season.

Natural Gas:  The East Region's inventory, of which Nebraska is a part, is 685 billion cubic feet--4.3% more than last week and 85 billion cubic feet above the 5-year average.  For the week ending May 6, the national inventory level is 1,509 billion cubic feet.  Close to 3 trillion cubic feet is generally considered to be adequate for winter demand.  This would require an injection of 1,491 billion cubic feet between now and the end of October.
