ARA gasoline stocks rise 7.4 pct

LONDON, Feb 26 (Reuters) – ARA gasoline stocks held in independent storage at Europe’s Antwerp-Rotterdam-Amsterdam hub rose 7.4 percent to 881,000 tonnes in the week to Thursday, data from Dutch-based PJK International showed.

ARA gasoil stocks slightly fell to 3.114 million tonnes from the record high hit last week due in part to a rare arbitrage to the U.S. Atlantic Coast, where freezing weather has increased demand.
