West Texas Intermediate crude fell to the lowest in almost three months on concerns the U.S. government is heading for a shutdown over a budget stalemate that may reduce demand in the world’s largest oil consumer.

The government would be better off if they could permanently shut down Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Barak Obama.

We'll see which side the public supports. That should give Congress a clear message of what to do next. DO WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT AND NOT THE POLITICIANS.

Looks like a lot of good will come from this shut down. At least the current regime has lost funding for the special interest groups for awhile.

Second article discussing similar fuel price decrease related to Wash. not pass a budget. They shouldn't call it a budget anyway, most of Washington wants unlimited spending with we the people paying the bill for the next few hundred years.

MY ignorance, somewhat understands the principles, BUT WHY do we price on "expectations" that may or may NOT be borne out; especially when the higher prices are a self fulfilling drag on our economy?

It is truly unfortunate that the members of the U.S. Congress cannot get their act together and co-operate in moving forward for the common good of the country.

Why a drop in price over the gov't shutdown? I should have thought it would have gone up for "spooking" the stock market?
