Crude oil most likley will never go below $90.00 per barrel ever again-at least for us---now China and Russia are not that stupid,they bought up Iraq's oil leases and get oil for a tiny fraction of that.

You can't develop and extract oil that costs $70.00 per barrel(support cost)just to get out of the ground when $15.00 and $20.00 crude oil is flooding the world market-so in order to develop and extract north American crude oil(some of the most expensive oil on the planet)those resources must be taken out of the picture(Iraq war propaganda war on Venezuela and other oil rich nations)and the way commodities are traded must be changed(deregulated banking system)now after all of that is taken care of(and was by 2004)the world market price for a barrel of crude oil will naturally skyrocket---and after about $85.00 per barrel you can start making a profit off of north American frack,shale and tar leftovers---Increased north American oil production is the result of sky high world oil prices-NOT the answer to them---the prices had to be driven to this point,and now they will be kept at this point or higher.

Oil co's control prices on gas , no matter what they pay.
The government lets them & gives them tax breaks also.

Pulling crude inventories down so they can jack up prices and make a little extra profit bump and the end of the year. There probably are tax incentives to reducing inventory at the end of the year also.

Inventories of both are higher than a year ago. Some of this statistical information is just hype.
