they will drop prices when we get serious about using our vast natural gas reserves to run vehicles, and it is our energy source, bringing jobs here.

carol: no changes, b/c Pig Oil doesn't care to drop them. Profit is more important in the short term.

Please give us CHARTS and GRAPHS instead of just numerical data...

Make it WORTH our time to "read" the article and VISUALLY put things into perspective!

We would like to see a chart comparing the inventories of crude oil and gasoline versus the price of both in constant U.S. dollars over time. Only then will we see if there is any sort of tracking between the two.

It's a constant roller coster with the fuel, either the price or inventories. Whatever.

The price of gasoline in Los Angeles has continued to go down even after last week's report of reduced gasoline inventories.

EIA shows decline in gasoline inventories, huge build in oil supply and fuel prices at the pump are still too high and Big Oil's profits continue to rise at our expense. Local fuel prices are starting to show a little rise in prices. Not Good!
Crude oil inventories increased, Gasoline inventories decreased, Distillate inventories increased, Refinery utilization increased 0.9% from last week, Total US oil stocks are up 1.5% over last year and there are still high fuel prices at the pump! The fuel prices at the pump should be much lower to help 'coming out of the closet' Sneeker666 'spending gone wild' very bad 'in the crapper' socialist economy recover a little bit more! But, that;s not going to happen!
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!
