After posting an impressive rally that started in mid-to-late June, the rally in crude oil appears to have stalled- at least for the time being.

Crude prices stood at $93.69/bbl as recently as June 21, with prices seemingly peaking on July 10 at $106.52/bbl. The $12.83 advance between those two dates brought crude to its highest close in well over a year, and with it, gasoline prices have been racing higher.

However, crude prices have stalled in the last few trading sessions, staying below their recent $106.52/bbl peak, dropping to $105 and holding there over the last three trading sessions.

Retail gasoline prices have some distance to cover to match the rise in crude oil prices, and so even as crude prices now...

Egypt didn't explode, so the excuse for pushing prices has disappeared.

Has anyone else noticed that there hasn't been a MasterCard SpendingPulse Gasoline purchase weekly report since February? Once that stopped, we had no real indicator of what is spent in the U.S. versus the processed products they are exporting. Rules had been put in place that our crude couldn't be exported, but as long as it had some type of processing, then out of the country it could go.

If we could clear the speculators from banks and hedge funds who never intend to take delivery of a single drop of crude oil, we might actually get back to supply and demand with reasonable prices around $80-90/barrel
