Spot gasoline in California gained as at least two tankers were chartered to load refined products on the U.S. West Coast early next month for export to South and Central America.

The Alpine Eternity is scheduled to load fuel off the West Coast on July 6 for Central and South America, according to ship-fixture data compiled by Bloomberg. The tanker, anchored off the coast of Baja California, was at Chevron Corp. (CVX)’s Richmond refinery in Northern California on June 19, according to IHS Inc. (IHS) data.

The Isola Corallo, traveling north off the coast of Peru, was chartered by Valero Energy Corp. (VLO) to load clean products off the West Coast on July 7 for delivery to Chile, ship-fixture data show. IHS data show the vessel is heading for Martinez, California.

Too bad the sellers don't have a loyalty to the US.

This is my thought today...When the American people stand up and demand A source of affordable oil you will see oil prices slip.American oil development is expensive if you feel A few thousand US oil jobs are worth $4.oo+gal gas then stop complaining about the price.I belive low gas prices(if they stay low no more than $2.00gal)will promote TRUE job creation-in the millions of jobs.Drop all taxes on gas immediately,lets have A vote to buy out speculators(gasoline is much too necessary for this much fluctuation)Ill pay A thousand dollars today for that.Lets have oil companies guarantee A price for the year say $2.50gal to $2.75gal and if it goes higher prove why-is that to much to ask?We have the buying power of hundreds of millions of people.This is A world market why do we have no say at all?
If you agree Buddy me !

We should be exporting just to raise prices here. We need to take care of our own country first.

MANIPULATION, SPECULATION, GREEEEEEEEEEEEED !!!!!!

Gasoline is a globally traded commodity. Since the West Coast refineries can produce the desired product as an acceptable price, they will be producing products for export.

We should not be exporting our natural currency from North America, our prices will rise, and shortages may occur, due to corporate greed.

Where are the "drill baby drill" fanatics now!

Our US crude's products are being exported, and guess what? OUR PRICES ARE GOING UP!!!

Because greedy big oil sells the stuff where they get the highest price! Meaning, they sell stuff to S. America at a good price, while supply runs short in the US and they get a higher price here at home for the same stuff they just sold abroad! What a sneaky tactic to make a buck.

Disgraceful. American companies are choking the American economy to maximize their own profit.

Mission is NOT accomplished.
Nationalize the oil in Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia,
Oil companies in America.
Leave Qatar alone.
Then the mission will be accomplished.

To me it is amazing how Big Oil has so much gas that they can fill an export quota but come up short in America and have to raise the prices.

Hope Californians ask why their gasoline prices are so high as those ships sail off.

This is nothing new. We send our oranges to Florida and they send theirs to us so we can all keep the prices up. Now it happens with gas? Not surprised but then again, at least we don't live in Ohio! :-)

Worldwide supplies need to be developed to remove the incentive to export off our shores.
