EIA to cease weekly inventory data due to US budget impasse
The U.S. Energy Information Administration on Friday said it will not publish its weekly inventory and other data after today due to funding issues related to the government shutdown.
EIA said it will cease operations and furlough staff at the end of the day. The agency told energy companies to continue submitting their data to the EIA. The information will be processed after the furlough period is over, it said.
"EIA survey respondents, whom EIA will be contacting directly, should continue to submit their data, which will be processed after the furlough period is over," a spokesman said in an e-mail.
