Goldman is one of the largest oil speculators & Obama supports. They also received a bailout, plus the CEO's wife was given 2 million plus GRANT to start a business. " The selling of the White House " by B. Obama.

... an e-mail. The drop in U.S. refinery runs shows “summer demand is easing,” he said.

WTI for September delivery, which expires tomorrow, fell 21 cents to $107.25 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange at 11:04 a.m. in London. It settled at $107.46 on Aug. 16, the highest close since Aug. 1. The October contract was down 33 cents to $106.96. The volume of all futures traded was about 5 percent below the 100-day average.

Brent for October settlement rose 11 cents to $110.51 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. It was at a premium of $3.55 to WTI. The spread narrowed for the first time in a week on Aug. 16 to $3.11.

Brent, the benchmark crude for more than half the world’s oil, may rise to about $115 a barrel in the “very near term,” Goldman Sachs said in a report today. It raised its three-month and six-month price projections.

“The disruptions in Libyan oil supplies have lasted far longer than we initially thought, with no near-term resolution in sight, which was further complicated by the involvement of the military,” said Jeffrey Currie, a Goldman analyst in New York. “Combined with the ongoing problems in Iraq, which we see extending into the autumn, OPEC outages since the beginning of the summer have taken 33 million barrels off the market.”
