Why Oil Prices Will Keep Falling: Record Pumping

CNBC -- Oil prices, down about 30 percent since March, will likely stay under pressure for now based on record global production and softer demand.


West Texas intermediate (New York Mercantile Exchange: clcv1) was trading higher Friday, bouncing more than a percent off its Thursday close of $78.20 per barrel. Brent (Intercontinental Exchange Europe: LCOCV1), the international benchmark, rose back above $90 per barrel Friday.

Despite the blip, though, analysts see oil headed further down.

The reason? The world is now pumping 91.1 million barrels per day, the most ever. At the same time, global demand in May was 89.9 million barrels per day, the International Energy Administration reported.

Prices Will Keep Falling, Record Pumping? That's what she said!
What happened to that $5/gallon forecast for summer gasoline? Record global oil production! Less profits for those greedy Speculators, Manipulators and banks, better fuel prices for the consumer. Is the economy getting weaker and it can't stand all the profit taking going on? Is this an election year stunt for 'coming out of the closet' Barry, to ease the pain at the pump? How fast will the prices go up again? The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon and help improve this very lousy, need more jobs, economy!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe and reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money. Consider using other forms of less expensive transportation to lower your cost, if possible.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Amazing that people are learning that lower demand with steady / higher supply = lower prices. I just wish the low demand wasn't because of bad economy.

I’m not going to ask why they are pumping more. I’ll just enjoy the lower price at the pump.

Is it possssible for a downward trend for the long term? I think we all know it is not highly likely.

China's slowdown has a significant effect on world prices, as they are not buying as much oil.

The terrible world economic situation also contributes to this pricing too. Obviously the speculators are not being bullish on oil at this time.

What happened to peak oil being 87 million barrels per day?

Seems like peak oil eventually goes up with the price of oil.

With as much as oil has dropped per barrel the price at the pump should be quite a bit lower.
