UPDATE 5-Oil falls, more Saudi supply seen

Reuters (via Yahoo! News) -- Oil fell on Wednesday as the prospect of more Saudi supply offset optimism about an improving global economy bolstering demand.

April Brent crude futures were 40 cents down at $117.12 a barrel after posting their first gain in four sessions on Tuesday. U.S. crude added 16 cents to $96.82. The contract expires later on Wednesday.

Saudi Arabia, the world's top exporter of crude oil, expects to raise its output in the second quarter to satisfy higher demand from China and drive economic recovery elsewhere, oil industry sources said, but the exact rise in volume was unclear.

Saudi Arabia's move to cut output sharply by about 700,000 barrels per day (bpd) in the last two months of 2012 had helped tighten supply and supported oil prices.

The formula for the increased price of a gallon of gas: The amount of money the average person has left over at the end of the month divided by the average number of gallons of gasoline used. This equals the amount available for a price increase per gallon. Gas price increase equals up to 100% of this amount.

We need more North America oil supply and more refining to improve the economy or a recession will hit us harder than last time. No jobs and higher costs of living will drive people mad and more mental illness on the populations.

We imported 611,000 bpd and exported 484,000 bpd with refineries in the states shutting down or doing maintenance. Doesn't pass the smell test. To many places for people to play with prices to get a handle on it. Or to many hands in the pie and we get leftovers.

Since I just finished my road-trip, it is okay for prices to fall now. This happened last year too. I might not take a trip next year, and see what happens.

We need to drill for our own oil, add to our refineries so they can handle more when needed. Get the EPA out of the way.

Even though crude oil is falling, the prices will continue to rise as companies pass of the cost of maintenance and repair of the refineries.

We can all welcome an increase in Saudi production, including the speculators, who will now have to take their profits and sell and sell short on oil and fuels.

About time. Maybe this will break the speculation bubble that has spiked wholesale and retail gas prices in the last few weeks.
