ABSTRACT
The article reports that the weakness in the U.S. chemical market may contribute to the downward trend in Asian benzene prices. It notes that the weak market could also affect the costs of toluene in the region. According to suppliers, an expected increase in supply in the country in June and July 2007 exerted downward pressure on the prices. One producer estimated import levels during the months to the U.S. from Asia and other regions at approximately 120,000 metric tons.
