I never cease to be amazed. Exports of refined products are done 100% with foreign oil, Mexico and Trinidad and Tobago. Weekly changes are meaningless usually due to the timing of tanker unloading and loading. If you saw something like this for 4 or 5 weeks it MIGHT have some meaning. We are also at the time of year where refineries and terminals start to shuffle the deck to minimize property taxes. Product on ships at sea beyond the 12 mile limit don't count for property tax purposes.

If you want to shut down export of refined products I think you should personally taxed for and pay the unemployment benefits for the OCAW workers on temporary layoff. If Mexico and Trinidad and Tobago can't refine their extra crude here they can send it to Cuba instead. You guys like Fidel that much? We can get you Hero of the 26th of July awards if you want. How about that Comrades?

Crude oil inventories decreased, Gasoline inventories decreased, Distillate inventories decreased, Refinery utilization up 1.5% from last week numbers, Total US oil stocks are up 4.9% over last year.
Crude oil inventories have decreased, Gasoline inventories decreased, US oil stocks increased but there are still high fuel prices at the pump? The fuel prices at the pump should be lower to help the economy recover! More Refineries are Not the answer, stop exporting that fuel is!
Are the fuel prices at the pump Not high enough already, restrict the production of fuel to raise those prices at the pump?
Big Oil and Big Gas continues to sell fuel and natural gas on the world market for higher prices, there will be NO price reduction for the cost of fuel or natural gas IN the US. 'Coming out of the closet' Sneeky's lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, the jobs are Not here. Sneeky's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population and the job numbers continue to be down! People will still drive and buy fuel no matter what but it sure helps to have a job too!
The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens! Speculators, manipulators and the banks continue to unfairly and unjustly make the driving public pay higher prices at the pump for their personal greedy benefit.
The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon, *$3, *$3.50/gallon or *$4.00 is Not the new low!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Of the information, there were two parts that indicates we are moving in the wrong direction. Refinery utilization needs to increase in some areas and exports of finished petroleum products should not exceed imports.
