2parrots - "EIA were non-essential during the shutdown .Let`s make that permanent."

Are you "essential" in your job?

Meaning would your company suffer significant damage if they fired you?

How much effect does the EIA reports contributes to the pump pricing? I am thinking if the EIA says inventory is low, does pump prices go up?

mdcsgt: You need to add transportation cost to the gas station, then add some profit for the owner, and finally slap on that state and federal gas tax
