Oil prices have been under attack in the last few weeks, perhaps a remarkable turn around given what is considered normal for this time of year. At last look, oil prices began this week by shedding nearly $2/bbl, bringing them down to $89/bbl, something that is highly unusual this time of year, but goes to show how rising domestic supply and availability may be keeping a lid on oil prices.

The good news is that lower oil prices will be a leading contributor to lower pump prices, which as of this morning stand nearly 40c/gal lower than they did a year ago. Hawaii is the lone state where gasoline prices remain above an average of $4/gallon, and due to unique issues there, will likely remain above $4/gallon.

Across the rest...

Won't last?? Someone in Middle East will rattle a sword or if not that Hurricane season starts June 1st. First storm to form in the Gulf will send everything higher. Lord forbid a storm making landfall in Louisiana or Texas, it'll go to $5 or $6 a gallon in 1/2 a day???

The bigger picture is the commodities market in general taking a dive. The speculators control the market and when they get "spooked" the market dives. Supply and demand have little to do with prices anymore. It's all about media spin and disinformation.
