wang: anything to do w/ Pig Oil inventories and prices does not follow supply & demand. If it were, we'd have prices at the pump in the 1.50 range.

Look at this article also here on GasBuddy: U.S. Refiners May Cut Gasoline Output on ‘Poor’ Sales, JBC Says

Now tell me the oil companies don't manipulate their inventories and supplies.

Nice to see the East Coast refineries are getting back on track.

Jeffro61 said: "Prices will force us into another recession."

It wasn't high gas prices that got us in the recession in the first place - it was the manipulation of the housing finance industry by Democrats. What WILL get us into another recession is higher taxes and continued reckless spending by the Obozo administration...you know, the same administration that promised us "Recovery Summer" a couple of years ago but delivered squat. They clearly don't have any idea what makes for a vibrant economy, so we're really screwed for the next 4 years.

Prices should be in the low $2 range or lower but they are not done making mega money off us yet. Add in the fact that state governments are taxing gas more and more as a unseen 'tax' and we the people get screwed once again..

Good to hear but this as we know will be short lived!!!! The refineries will surely cut production to drive the prices back up!!!!

Strange no mention by the EIA of $8 gallon fuel or $268 a barrel oil in 2040.

When money is tight, people stay home and concentrate on family matters. I understand that this time of year the supply does go up. Snow and rain and cold tend to take the shine off travel.

Ah, two increases in inventories. Is there a correlation between this and slightly lower gas prices in South Carolina? Probably not.

This could be telling us that the people are starting to reduce spending because of an impending recession.

With apparent differnce between supply and demand, prices should be dropping like stones. Unfortunately they are not.

The increased inventory will not have the consumer’s desired effect of substantially lower prices.

East and West Coast refineries are operating at only 79% capacity while the rest of the nation is operating at 90 to 95% capacity. So the "blue states" have an artificial shortage and pay higher prices than the red states. This is price manipulation by the oil companies and refineries.It is wrong.
