GASOLINE INVENTORIES:
Gasoline inventories increased by 1.6 million barrels to 231.8 million barrels. At 231.8 million barrels, inventories are 9.1 million barrels, or 3.8% lower than last year. Here's how individual regions and their gasoline inventory fared last week: East Coast (N/C); Midwest (+0...

The energy Information Agency is a waste of money to the US taxpayers.

Crude inventories barely rose, gasoline and distillate inventories up. Crude oil inventories increased, Gasoline inventories increased, Distillate inventories increased and Refinery utilization rose. Total oil stocks in the US are down. About the same as last week (Distillate decreased/Refinery fell).
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 for their benefit.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle is, 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!

no matter how much gasoline inventories rise gas will still go up and even with demand down prices will still go up as they have since Obama took office.

Something here does not add up. If gas inventories are UP, shouldn't the retail price go DOWN? Not happening here!!!!

It's pretty useless info any more since no one pays attention to that anyway when prices are determined.

Another boring topic, nothing to say. How about start reserving your dozen of roses now, the price is going to the roof. Gasoline will look like very cheap.

"Crude inventories barely rose, gasoline and distillate inventories up"???

=================

Crude barely rose, gas inventories up?

And the prediction is higher pump prices in the coming months???

To me this is "illogical" but, then again I am not a speculator who "earns" money by betting that prices will go up, and up and up.

??????????????????

And yes, the speculators must never allow any kind of renewable energy to compete! --

Thus we must continue the mantra, Drill baby Drill, Drill, baby Drill . . .

They are not going to raise inventory in the US when they can ship it elsewhere for a higher profit. If inventory rises we will demand lower prices.

Inventories can move up or down and have little impact on pump prices.

Somebody really needs this information to really screw the American consumer. The American consumer just doesn't know who that is.

It looks like the refiners have reduced the supply to the demand. (lower supplies this year than last)

Gas prices are still rising because oil producers want it to rist. I refer to it as greed. Prices here have gone up 14¢/gal in one week.
