Gasoline slid the most in two months as Brent crude retreated, lowering the cost of imported crude and motor fuel at a time when U.S. inventories are increasing and demand is stagnant.

Futures sank 1.9 percent as Brent dropped following the startup of the expanded Seaway pipeline, which will bring domestic oil to the Gulf Coast, pushing out imports. Gasoline consumption in the U.S. is the lowest in almost a year and inventories are the highest since February 2011, Energy Information Administration data show.

Gasoline for February delivery fell 5.38 cents to settle at $2.7395 a gallon on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the biggest decline since Nov. 7 and lowest settlement since Dec. 21. Futures declined 0.9 percent this week, the second consecutive loss.

A few cents is no slip or slide in price. Now a $30 or $40 decline in the barrel price would be a slip and a slide.

Gas does not slump, just lags at times.

This article is misleading. Trend is definitely up for crude over the last several weeks.

It no longer makes any difference how low the price of oil gets, gasoline will only continue to go up.

Key points:

1) Brent crude retreated;
2) U.S. inventories are increasing;
3) demand is stagnant;
4) Gasoline consumption in the U.S. is the lowest in almost a year;
5) inventories are the highest since February 2011.

When supply is high and demand is low, prices are supposed to go DOWN. So why are we paying $93 a barrel for oil and over $3.00 a gallon for gasoline? You only get one guess ... and the correct answer begins with the letter 's.'
