The Department of Energy released its weekly report on the condition of petroleum inventories in the United States today.

Here are some highlights:

Crude oil inventories increased by 2.0 million barrels to a total of 357.7 million barrels. At 357.7 million barrels, inventories are 1.5 million barrels above last year (0.4%) and are above average. Supply at NYMEX delivery point, Cushing, Oklahoma rose 0.0 million barrels to 41.9 million barrels this week.

Gasoline inventories decreased 0.4 million barrels to 216.7 million barrels, likely as they drain the system of winter spec (high RVP) gasoline. At 216.7 million barrels, inventories are now 5.7 million barrels, or 2.6% lower than last year (last week that number...

Crude oil inventories increased, Gasoline inventories decreased, Distillate inventories increased, Refinery utilization rose, Production of fuel ethanol decreased and the price of fuel at the pump is too high!

… “rose 0.0 million barrels”; and “Among the regions posting gains … the Rockies (-0.0mb)” — sound like instances of a bit of “fuzzy math” to me.  Also, that “Crude oil inventories increased by 2.0 million barrels …” while “Total oil stocks in the United States are down 7.2 million barrels” seems rather ambiguous. I suppose that could be referring to refined product being off; but that isn't exactly borne-out in the article. Obviously price is up, so the supply-chain is encountering resistance to movement somewhere; and contrary to the “speculation” conspiracists' speculations, stagnation doesn't help their profit equation either. I know of no entity on earth that can screw things up more royally and that is more irresponsible than “big gov”; and that is where You'll find the real culprits behind these lousy prices. (They'll be found “scapegoating” others, of course; and “painting the roses red”.) Drill !! and increase refining capacity, in anticipation of the economic boom that will follow stifling “big gov” having gotten out of the way of enterprise.

Crude inventories keep increasing for weeks while gasoline inventories keep decreasing. The article again suggest they ae probably depleting their winter supplies. Sounds like refineries have reduced output to help push prices up so they can get in on the extra profits.>"Refinery utilization rose to 84.4%, a rise of 0.3% vs. last week's numbers. Gasoline production decreased last week to 8.8 million barrels per day while distillate fuel production averaged 4.3 million barrels per day, an increase over the prior week."<

Simply put, with greater refinery production and less interference by market speculators, pump prices might have levelled off.

Crude is in excess and the price is up. Thank you speculators. Gasoline supplies are a little below normal but not in excess and the price is out of sight. Thank you big oil and speculators. We need to have Natural Gas infrastructure now. We need to have the money that the government was just going to give to Big Oil and the Ethanol Mafia for doing nothing and use it for rebates and incentives to convert to Natural Gas for low interest loans for the infrastructure. We need the Natural Gas Conversion Stations to quit scalping the public and to make a reasonable profit on each job and not have to pay for every license and certification with each installation. We need the American automobile manufactures who are making Natural Gas cars and trucks for the overseas market to make them available in America.

Nothing surprising and no real change here. Supplies up and prices up as has been happening. Demand is lower than two years ago. We're just getting screwed. Doesn't hurt the wealthiest of the people as they only get richer through their buddies in Congress among the democrats and republicans there.
