Prices for 2020 winter LPG pressure tank cars are weaker, reflecting uncertainty over the coming winter season. Refinery demand is seen as being weaker than usual, and propane demand is uncertain.

Tank car sub-lease rates were little changed as the summer doldrums continued to keep action quiet. Surplus pressure tank cars on the Gulf Coast are carrying propane and butane to Mexico.
