KEEP YOUR TANKS FULL! I've been preaching this for almost 2 months. The "pundits" and "experts" have NOT understood the supply/demand curve for gasoline that started to shape at the beginning of summer. Gasoline refineries have been overworked for months and months. Many have broke down. Some have caught on fire. This was all BEFORE the huricane!! We've seen some after driving season price drop, but very little and this is probably it. STAY FULL! We are only one or two down refineries from shooting back over $4 for a national average. Obamas failing and falling dollar will continue to put upward pressure on oil/gasoline.

Crude oil inventories increased, Gasoline inventories decreased, Distillate inventories increased, Refinery utilization dropped, Total US oil stocks are up. 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' Chucks lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, the jobs are Not here. Chuck's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population and the job numbers continue to be down – no matter how smoooooth talking Chuck spins those numbers and he can spin them very well! 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 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 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!

The inventories numbers should not be touted so much anymore.

Ten years ago they meant a lot more.

Ten years ago we were starting to import gasoline.

Today, we export gasoline and other refined products.

Today, we import oil to convert to gas, diesel and other products that we then export.

In other words, we have plenty of gas and diesel as a whole but some areas of the country may have a shortage.

the overall stocks are up 11.8 million barrels and yet the prices have not gone down, where is supply and demand? I know the oil companies think that they can raise prices because some of the product has not yet been proceeded. Get move. Hope the food stories don't start to raise food prices just because the cows are still in the field not it the butches warehouse.

Theses cartel gangsters have stolen trillions of dollars from the American public at a small investment of a few $ million to our politicans. This is the most corrupt and irresponsible governments we have in American History.
