# Why do 58% of domestic crude produced in PADD III and 55% of net crude imports also go to PADD III imply that crude oil must move out of PADD III?

$$\color{red}{[1.]}$$ Although 49% of US refining capacity resides in PADD III, notice how 58% of domestic crude is produced in PADD III and 55% of net crude imports also go to PADD III. $$\color{red}{[2.]}$$ This implies that crude oil must move out of PADD III to other PADDs to remain $$\color{forestgreen}{balanced}$$. As a matter of fact, roughly 1.4 Million barrels a day of oil moves from PADD III to PADD II and PADD IV.

1. I don't grasp the implication. How does $$\color{red}{[1]}$$ above imply $$\color{red}{[2]}$$?

2. $$\color{forestgreen}{balanced}$$ with what? Why must the PADDs' crude oil be balanced?
