Oil Companies are artificially causing supply shortages to hold the prices up to make the most profit. They owe it to their STOCK HOLDERS. Stock Holders like huge profits. CEO's do too, it's called 7 digit bonuses!!!!!!

The price of oil is way down, it much be time to push up the price of gasoline! Wait ... inventories are down 0.25 percent! That's the reason our gas prices went up $0.15 a gallon this week!

Why would they change it? They don't want prices to drop, after all. Wouldn't be good for business.

EIA shows little change in refinery production, utilization, fuel prices at the pump are still too high and Big Oil's profits continue to rise at our expense.
Crude oil inventories decreased, Gasoline inventories decreased, Distillate inventories increased, Refinery utilization decreased 0.5% from last week, Total US oil stocks are up 1.7% over last year and there are still high fuel prices at the pump! The fuel prices at the pump should be lower to help 'coming out of the closet' Sneeker666 'spending gone wild' very bad crappy socialist economy recover a little bit more!
Big Oil and Big Gas sells fuel and natural gas on the world market for higher prices. 'Coming out of the closet' Sneeker666 lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, the jobs are Not here. Sneeker666 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 'Sneeker666' back in office. Can't wait for Sneeker666 to fade away like it was an eight year nightmare! The sooner, the better! GRRRrrrrrrrr!
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 is!
*If 'they' can export all that fuel, there are enough refineries already, there is no need for more!
Take care of the domestic fuel market first and above all else before exporting and selling fuel or natural gas to other countries or markets!
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!
