NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. crude oil exports surged to 3.2 million barrels per day (bpd) last week, the highest on record, based on data going back to 1991, U.S. Energy Information Administration data showed on Thursday.
The surge in exports helped push weekly net imports of crude to the lowest on record last week at about 4 million bpd, the data showed.
