Any kind of report on oil is a reason for them to raise it, then we go back to using less and they drop it again. The export of our oil and the up coming natural gas should be banned. Sale all the coal they want to China

Lots of crude, but all the refineries are either closed or barely producing gasoline.

Something doesn't seem right here. We have LOTS of crude, not so much for the refined products.

And with a 55 cent jump is less than three weeks, I'm wondering what ripples from the national disaster that was Election Day 2012 is having in the short term.

1 million barrels is just a smallest dent in the stockpile. Pure speculation is rampant here.

There are a lot of other industries that are greedier than Big Oil. The only thing is they're not the size of Big Oil.

Gas prices went up 20 cents here this past week. Maybe this will help bring it back down.
