Exporting much of it too. Oil production here means little or nothing to the consumer.

No price climb here during Memorial Day weekend. No price climb here during Fourth of July weekend.

Hopefully, the same pricing will continue during Labor Day weekend!

This is but another artificial decline since BIG OIL started exporting large quantities of refined gasoline.

Letting inventories drop is a way of raising prices.

Crude down from last year - at the upper end of average.
Gas up from last year.
My gas prices are 50-60 cents less than last year. Still high, but not as high as a year ago.

Crude oil inventories mean nothing. What must be stopped is the greed & corruption in Washington by our own lawmakers.

Need to get them back up... Keep the price down. Letting it fall is how the oil companies substantiate higher gas prices artificially.
