Production declines to keep gas prices where they are currently at. Fraud!

Interpretation? What does it mean? How does it relate to gas prices? Investors may be interested I suppose and it keeps another government bureaucracy busy grinding out numbers.

These numbers just don't have the punch that they used to have.

Since, unlike 10 years ago, we now export a lot of refined products including gasoline and diesel, inventories can fluctuate but we are not in the situation of running out of oil or gas.

Gas spiked a nickel yesterday. Must have expected a rush at the pumps buying gas for the snow blowers.

The article says that gasoline production declined but also gasoline inventories are up. That must mean that consumption has declined, but we had one of our "regular" price increases this week. This doesn't add up.

As long as the Democrats are occupying the White House, we'll have Republicans saying they can lower gas prices. Like most politicians, they're long on hot air and lacking in details.

>The lame stream media will not say anything.

The Republicans who want Obama's job will say anything.
