Gas life in the federal strategic petroleum reserve.

I’m seeing where 1k barrels are being released from the SPR for sale. The news articles say 1k of ‘gas’. If gas only has a shelf life of a couple of years for stabilized gas, how can the gas in the SPR still be ‘good’?

The SPR stores crude oil, not gasoline. Whatever you were reading may have been incorrect about gas vs. oil or simplifying it to the amount of gas the oil translates into, without the details of whatever you read it’s impossible to know. But, the SPR stores crude oil which does not have a shelf life
