The American Petroleum Institute had reported late Tuesday an increase of 6.2 million barrels, according to sources. But the EIA also reported that total domestic crude output rose by 572,000 barrels a day to 9.35 million barrels. Gasoline stockpiles were down 8.4 million barrels for the week, while distillate stockpiles fell 3.2 million barrels, according to the EIA.
