There is a floor on the cost to produce oil & natural gas, and no one can sell for less than that cost. So giving that take on matters gas at the pumps can only go so low. As pipelines are built, it will take some movements from rails, but it can not handle all of it. Rails right now cannot handle all that is produced.

The price of a barrel of oil has gone down for the last three days and the price has yet to follow. The oil companies never miss a chance to gouge us.

when the inventory levels move, whether up or down, by less than 1%, it hardly calls for "JUMP" or "FALL"... these fluctuations are little more than ripples

We need additional infrastructure to transport crude, refine it, store the end product, and deliver it to the end user.
