The trend of increasing oil stocks and decreasing demand for imported oil needs to continue.

Gas prices have been so high for such a long time that it has finally hurt people financially to the point that they can no longer maintain the standard of living they once had.

Oil prices need to be high in order to make frack and shale oil economically viable-world oil markets need to be maipulated in order to get crude oil to the laughable $80.00-$100.00+ per barrel range-this is a ten year old story,and exactly what happenes when you let oil men write our energy policy for oil men-and not for the American public.

Dropped a couple of pennies here but nothing signficant. It's funnt how prices jump real fast when the manipulated supplies are declining but when they are on the increase they wait and wait looking for a new reason to push prices back up

Frack and shale oil are not economically viable if the price of crude is not sky high--a little reading on the subject will tell you that right away,the incredibly high extraction costs are only a small part of the actual costs to our environment and our infrastructure--and all of us will pay for these extra costs if we own a car or not.If you want to believe it or not cheaper affordable oil was shut off to us on march 20 2003 by neocon oil men,with war and lies-and China and Russia are very happily grabbing up the incredibly vast high quality ocean of cheap oil in Iraq,they are by-passing OPEC and world market prices by buying the leases and not the oil--a little reading on this will also tell you right away that cheap oil for us is a thing of the past--and dont believe the bs on how this is good for America--China and Russia gaining an ocean of cheap oil that our troops fought over,while we choke on $4.00gal gas is one of the worst things I can think of.China is also making deals in Iran and other middle east oil producing nations--

The oil companies will need to create a few refinery outages in order to support high prices.

I guess these boring articles are what the people want to read that are always complaining that other stories aren't about gas prices.

Oh no! Crude oil inventories are down (still more than last year and high in the average range), it has to be time to raise gas prices!!!
