West Texas Intermediate crude headed for a third monthly decline, the longest losing streak in almost five years, amid rising OPEC exports and increased supplies in the U.S., the world’s biggest oil consumer.

Futures rose as much as 0.6 percent in New York after falling 1.5 percent on Nov. 27, the most in two weeks. OPEC, which meets next week, will boost exports through mid-December by 3 percent as refineries resume after maintenance, according to tanker tracker Oil Movements. The U.S. pumped crude at the fastest rate in almost 25 years while inventories climbed to the highest since June, Energy Information Administration data released on Nov. 27 show.

“The momentum is negative in WTI,” said Ole Hansen, head of commodity strategy at Saxo Bank A/S in Copenhagen.

The price always seems to get to a certain low price and then needs to creep back up again!

If only the Obama administration would get behind the growth we might see some real change.

I am expecting $85 per barrel, if the Administration would get out of our way...

This could help offset the impacts of Obamacare....

infinitom is right on re ROI, but corporate logic is also a big roadblock for new refineries. Here's a scenario: huge amounts of time, engineering and money to build; makes gas, diesel and chemicals more plentiful driving prices down (also bad for their retail side), longer payouts and reduced profits long term, then reduced ROI to shareholders. If you were running an oil company, how much incentive would that be for you?

On May 25, 2009, I posted an AP article on here about the impact of low oil prices on the Permian Basin oil fields. Oil was $60 a barrel, new exploration was nil, marginal wells were being shut down, and many jobs were lost. One of the quotes from that article read, "Oil company executives agree that oil in the $70-$75 per barrel range is needed to revive the industry, but a lack of credit capital, unstable oil prices and high service costs are all factors holding back the industry."

While lower WTI prices are good in the short-term, we need to recognize the risks involved if prices get too low. Let's be careful what we wish for.

It is easy to blame Oil Companies for not building refineries but they have a responsibility to their shareholders to see a Return On Investment. When you have an Administration that turns loose an EPA to make costly rules that deliver no benefit and a person of Al Gore's stature saying the next financial bust will be in oil , why should they invest. There needs to be a climate of cooperation.

Numerous posters correctly identify refineries as the next bottleneck. Now the problem is getting oil companies to use their huge profits to build more. Given those can cost a $billion+ I'm not holding my breath.
txequitygas - if we wait for leadership in DC we'll be rotting in our graves. The only possible out for that is to change from the bozos who are there - both sides. Maybe we should kick out the lot and start over. Newbies can't be any worse than what we've got now.

This is good. My oil stock is bottoming because it is not part of big oil but that is okay. What is good for the country is good for me. Eventually it will go back up and I will be okay. At this time I have taken the shot and lost. Thank goodness for the dividends.

If the refineries are having problems the price decrease doesn't reach the pump.

Diesel and gas remain high as those are determined by the market based on what comes out of a refinery, not out of the ground
