Sprague Resources (SRLP), which is involved in refined products and natural gas terminalling and marketing, recorded the biggest loss last week. SRLP fell 7.2% during the week. SRLP’s weak performance last week could be due to weakness in gasoline prices despite hurricanes Irma and Harvey. The partnership owns 19 refined product terminals with ~14.1 million barrels of total storage capacity. Moreover, it provides natural gas to 45 utilities in 12 US states. The partnership has lost 13.2% YTD (year-to-date).
