Gas prices are therefore not connected to crude prices, inventories or even gas inventories... ok folks slow down and try to increase your efficency... oil companies might make a little less and then supply/demand economics might take hold.

so prices should come down, but someone in the refinery farted so it will go up but the wind is from the west so it will come down, but the day name ended with 'y' so it will go up.....

Inventories are up, so prices at the pump should go down, unless the station owners find that they don't have to. In other words, unless people stop going to the closest station regardless of price.

To those responders referring to "why are prices rising", it's a good question. Perhaps they should take a look at some events happening as sometimes reported on the MSM but more often only hinted at in the stories. Food production worldwide is down, pestilence may become a noticeable concern in the near future, conflict is increasingly possible in several theaters (not the movies, but specific areas of the world) I believe we are up to QE3 which probably won't work but will certainly bring its share of misery and instability. And more if you want to look and listen.
I believe we are being told something but some just don't want to listen and prepare.
On the other hand, there is much good that could occur. Science and manufacturing progress continues and may save us or even a good sized plague could wipe out most of us throughout the world, redistributing wealth and power. If you look at what the consequences of the Black Plague were, you can find a tremendous benefit to western Europe. And I didn't even mention how beneficial a large asteroid strike was to us about 65 million years ago. So keep a good thought.

Crude oil inventories increased, Gasoline inventories increased, Distillate inventories increased, total Refinery utilization increased 1%, Total US oil stocks are up 2.5%. Pump prices have been rising, refinery utilization in the 90% plus, except the East Coast @ 86.7% and West Coast @ 88%. Gasoline and Crude Oil inventories increased - that is a Good thing, higher prices at the pump is a Bad thing!
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' Barry will support natural gas and oil production for sale on the world market to pay for his ‘spending gone wild’ addiction and receive the huge federal tax income from oil. Barry's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population and the job numbers continues to be down – no matter how smooth talking Barry spins those numbers and he can spin them! 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 to $3.50/gallon 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. Consider using other forms of less expensive transportation to lower your cost.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Of course, it makes perfect sense that as the supplies available INCREASE the prices at the gas pump should go up as well.

We're the "small dog" being led by the smelly end of the greedy pig-oil industry!
