Crude oil inventories increased, Gasoline inventories increased, Distillate inventories decreased and Refinery utilization fell. Total oil stocks in the US are down. ‘Almost’ the same as last week.
STOP Big oil from selling fuel and natural gas on the world market for higher prices, there will be NO price reduction for the cost of fuel or natural gas IN the US. Barry will support natural gas and oil production for sale on the world market to pay for his ‘spending gone wild’ addiction. The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens! Speculators, manipulators and the banks continue to unfairly and unjustly make the driving public pay higher prices at the pump.
Produce and ‘drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

The Only way to better stabilize petroleum prices is to stop or control Speculation on Commodities Futures. Washington knows this but refuses to insist that it be done. The other way is to regulate Exportation to keep prices lower in the USA. Many other nations have no problem doing this via laws or Export Taxes.

If one's demand was down & could find another buyer would you do that...exporting keeps it running.
.
If it meant keeping the business producing @ least till demand pick backup or shutting the door...
.
The doors have been shut the demand returns now not enough producers...gee what happen to the good old day's when gas was 3.41...

Amazing how hard refineries can work when they get to charge what they want and double their exports of fuel to other countries!

Small changes in inventory, generally have little effect on pump prices.

Inventories up? Don't worry, big oil will sell off our reserves just so we can buy them back at a large increase in price.

What is wrong with the oil companies? GREED We need to regulate these greedy b**tards!

we don't need to drill more as much as build new, publicly owned, refineries to keep the gougers in line.

Oh sure. Export of gasoline is greater than import. Hope our trade deficit reflects this.

These numbers mean nothing unless extremely high or extremely low.
