I missed it. Why was the massive crude inventory unsurprising, perhaps?

DOE shows unsurprising massive crude inventory decline, gasoline supply gains and the price of fuel remains high! The story remains the same....
Crude oil inventories decreased, Gasoline inventories increased, Distillate inventories increased, Refinery utilization increased 0.1% from last week numbers, Total US oil stocks are up 4.3% over last year but there are still high fuel prices at the pump. The fuel prices at the pump should be lower to help the economy recover earlier!
Big Oil and Big Gas sells fuel and natural gas on the world market for higher prices to other countries. '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!
Thanks to the Mindless Sheep that voted this bozo back in office.
The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens! The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon - *$3, *$3.50/gallon or *$4.00 is Not the new low!
More Refineries are Not the answer, Stop exporting fuel is!
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!

This would tell me that percentage wise more diesel is being exported than gasoline and that is why the diesel price is too high. The fact that we are above last years inventories makes no difference if big oil can stick it to us. I also believe that the price of diesel is being used to subsidize the price of gasoline.

I liked it better when the speculator talk was about lower fuel prices at the pump. That one seemed to work. Talk about crude is just that - crude.
