Oil gained in New York, capping the biggest weekly advance in three months, after U.S. employers hired more workers than expected in December.

Prices increased 17 cents after the Labor Department said payrolls rose by 155,000 workers last month, exceeding the 152,000 forecast in a Bloomberg survey of economists. Futures were down for most of the day as the Energy Department reported gasoline and distillate fuel supplies jumped a combined 7.14 million barrels last week.

“The payroll number is stronger than expected and it gives the market a boost,” said Rich Ilczyszyn, chief market strategist and founder of Iitrader.com in Chicago. “The large build in gasoline and distillates put a lid on oil prices.”

Funny how the increase of 3,000 workers being above the 152,000 forecast, causes oil prices to increase.

I am so sick of these speculators twisting everything around so that they can buy up oil JUST on paper to sell it in the future for a substantial profit. Make them take delivery of the oil they buy in the New York harbor and we would see less buying and then gas won't jump as quickly.

I see this as an easy solution, but apparently the government does not!

Let's go back to supply and demand as it is meant to be, not artificially inflated to serve their needs.

The title of the article should read " OIL SPECULATORS rip off the consumer again. " Obama goes on second vacation AGAIN. The federal government does nothing but spend, spend, spend.

Big week for Big Oil as they begin to believe that Congress is actually going to get something done...so Big Oil wants to take action to keep the economy in the toilet.

Time to make that over priced purchase.
On board for triple digit electric increase as well.
Food prices going up.
Taxes going up again.

The only thing going down is my bank account.

Blaming rising fuel prices on hiring more workers and overcoming the fiscal cliff is just like blaming holiday weight gain on Breathing too much air and drinking too much water. 'Nuff said.
