Very interesting information. Inventories are up and yet the local price at our pumps went up 49 cents per gallon. So much for the supply vs. demand theory.

I am very skeptical about anything coming out of the Oblamer Administration given all the lies, coverups, scandals & gross incompetence.

The price of oil is taking off like a rocket, up more than a dollar a barrel each of the last three days. Sounds like pure speculation at work to me.

east coast usually has the lowest refinery output therfore prices are always higher. if we didn't export distillates we would have a surplus for the year.
