Doesn't really mean anything. They can massage the numbers all they want and say whatever they want, and the pump price will continue up regardless

We are in a transition stage per big oil, changing from winter to summer and maintenance. Any excuse to keep prices high and inventories going down.

Ever since BIG OIL was able to wrangle the export of large quantities of refined gasoline without tax penalty, the laws of supply and demand have been effectively foreclosed. Until this rather salient element is reversed, BIG OIL will be able to charge pretty much what they want.
