A decline that leaves us 5% higher than last year hardly merits the screaming headline "Huge decline"!

I'm not sure I see the evil genius here. We imported less oil because we have very high inventories and prices were also high, hence the inventory fell and we still have very high inventories.

EIA 2013 budget: $27.2 BILLION taxpayer dollars, to tell us how much oil/gas we have!
Does anyone think the federal government has gotten completely out of control?

"Huge decline", really? Consumption is down, yet inventories are higher than last year, AND "above the upper limit of the average range." What a bunch of crap!

Take oil and gasoline off of the global commodities markets and you will put the Speculators out of business, stop the see-saw oil and gas prices ans save 56 cents per gallon (estimated Speculator markup) at the pump.
