     Northeast Heating Oil Reserve inventories classified as “Distillate Fuel Oil - Greater than 0.05 percent sulfur” are not considered to be in
     the commercial sector and therefore are excluded from distillate fuel oil supply and disposition statistics in Energy Information
     Administration publications, such as the Weekly Petroleum Status Report, Petroleum Supply Monthly, and This Week In Petroleum.
