This means we will only have the incredibly inaccurate API report on Tuesdays.

Uncertainty over overall inventory levels will be an upward driver on prices.

And I am supposed to care? The fact is the Oblamer Administration is too big & out of control with plenty of cuts coming if they want a debt ceiling deal.

What a shame, we won't be getting any more incorrect information from the EIA for a while.

It would be even better if the EIA would be closed permanently.

Bad news for the EIA. It will be worse news for them if the API data released a day earlier becomes the report to watch.
No one in government want to believe that the API or any other industry would publish accurate data without the spin.

Interesting dilemma - some groups need these government reports to transact their business. Might be a good idea to find another source if it is that important for the welfare of the company.

Good, maybe now there won't be so much fluctuation in oil prices every Wed. after they post their weekly report! It would be nice if supply and demand would actually dictate the oil price!

End the shutdown. It is supposed to be costing the US economy $300,000,000 a day.
