The refineries need to increase production. But, they won't in order to keep prices high.

I people don't run red lights, then there would be no tickets. There was an intersection near my house with an average of 1 death a year over the last 15 years, caused by people running red lights. When teaching my son to drive, I took him to that intersection to show him that just because your light is green, do not assume you are safe.

This means they are still gouging and stealing. We just had 3 stations to go up to$3.89 plus and the next day come down to $3.74 plus. This is outright gouging and I don't care what anyone says. They make millions extra when they just go up by one dime.

Inventories can drop because consumers are buying more or refineries are producing less.

Crude stocks swell to levels not seen since last summer, gasoline inventories drop and fuel prices at the pump continue to rise.
Crude oil inventories increased, Gasoline inventories decreased, Distillate inventories decreased, Refinery utilization decreased 0.9% from last week, Total US oil stocks are up over last year but there are still high fuel prices at the pump. The fuel prices at the pump should be lower to help Sneeky's very bad crappy economy recover just a little bit faster!
Big Oil and Big Gas sells fuel and natural gas on the world market for higher prices. '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!
No Thanks to the Mindless Pinhead Sheep that voted this bozo 'Sneeky' 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!
Take care of the domestic fuel market first and above all else!
Drive 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!

Well what the h-ll do you expect when you artificially drive gas prices by speculation - people stop buying and that creates a glut that causes the prices to drop and causes the speculators to get burned and causes them to run to congress to help bail them out.

One major detail that GOP talking heads like to forget (like Sean Hannity today), is that we can give all the drilling permits we want to the oil companies, but if they don't see a high enough price for oil, so that they can make a good ROI, they're not going to drill.

So when they blame Obama for high gas prices, because we don't drill here enough, they're just talking malarkey!
