Oil dropped as accelerating Chinese inflation bolstered concern that economic stimulus may be curbed. The spread between crude in New York and London narrowed to the least in almost four months.

Futures fell as much as 1.2 percent after the Chinese government said prices rose the most in seven months. The discount of West Texas Intermediate oil traded in New York to London’s Brent shrank after Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPD) and Enbridge Inc. (ENB) completed the Seaway pipeline expansion, providing an outlet for record supplies in the central U.S.

“If Chinese inflation is accelerating, there may be less room for stimulus, which would cool demand for oil in China,” said Addison Armstrong, director of market research at Tradition Energy in Stamford, Connecticut.

Didn't fall by much, but at least wholesale gasoline is down to $2.73 per gallon versus the mid-week $2.80 price.

As a result of the entire world following the US system of fraudulent government accounting, the path is going up a box canyon with no way to turn around. The metaphor will be reversed: the "fiscal cliff" will be, instead of something to jump off of, something to fly into.
