With the resumption of work and the alleviation of the epidemic of COVID-19, the demand of gasoline market will gradually increase. However, at present, the gasoline inventory of the refinery is high, and the operating load of the refinery is low, so the demand for MTBE is still relatively low, and the market price performance of MTBE is expected to remain low this week.
