The Associated Press

NEW YORK — The price of oil finished higher Friday after the Energy Department's Energy Information Administration reported a much bigger drop in the nation's crude supplies than analysts expected.

After trading lower much of the day, benchmark crude for February delivery closed up 17 cents at $93.09 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

The EIA report said crude supplies fell by 11.1 million barrels, or 3 percent, last week. Analysts expected a drop of just a million barrels. Oil supplies shrank as crude imports fell off by almost a million barrels a day last week. At the same time, supplies at the crucial hub for domestic crude at Cushing, Okla., stayed up at near-record levels. Overall U.S. crude inventories are about 9 percent above year-ago levels.

I'm sure a lot of this "crude supply drop" are sitting on tankers in open waters that could be delivered but won't be delivered soon so big oil and speculators can push the price of oil (and gasoline) higher, the same bullshet every single year. GRRR. Will our corrupt and very ignorant government ever adequately regulate these AHoles???

With huge reserves underfoot in the US, why aren't we aggressively going after it. Oops, my bad; I forgot about November.......2008.
