After a day has passed, no reaction of retail gas prices.
If these same exact numbers had been negative amounts, gas prices would have jumped by 10-15¢ at the pump - in an instant!

Crude oil inventories increased, Gasoline inventories increased, Distillate inventories decreased, Refinery utilization rose 0.7%, Total US oil stocks are up 3% over last year.
Crude oil and Gasoline inventories increased and high fuel prices at the pump! The trend for fuel prices at the pump is always up!
Big Oil continues to sell 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. 'Coming out of the closet' Fred's lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, the jobs are Not here. Fred's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population and the job numbers continue to be down – no matter how smoooooth talking Fred spins those numbers! People will still drive and buy fuel no matter what but it sure helps to have a job too!
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 personal greedy benefit.
How much will gas prices go up and they will rise, the trend is always up with fuel prices. The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon, $3, $3.50/gallon or $4.00 this is Not the new low!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Why would any company EXPORT oil and gas from the US, if not to just keep our prices high?? US oil doesn't have to shipped around the world and should be cheaper here, but they make more money shipping it to China!!

amazing we import 8.35 million barrels and export 2.91. Is my math off or is there a reason why we export when we don't have enough ourselves.

Well its obvious that inventories are not the driving factor when it comes to the higher prices of gas at the pump.
