LONDON, May 1 (Reuters) – Gasoline stocks independently held at Europe’s Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA) hub fell 19 percent to 808,000 tonnes in the week to Thursday, data from Dutch oil analyst Patrick Kulsen showed.

Gasoil inventories in the hub rose 7 percent to 1.645 million tonnes.
Naphtha stocks rose to 262,000 tonnes, and fuel oil inventories rose to 716,000 tonnes, while jet fuel stocks fell to 365,000 tonnes, the data showed.
