If inventories are up why do gas prices keep rising? So much for supply and demand.

A lot of inventory. Worthless to compare it to last year. Question is, how long would it last? Price should be lower.

Doesn't matter, the price still climbs. Supply and demand are no longer the indicator of price. The system is a sham, what a shame.

Again I'm not sure if the EIA has the numbers right, but they want us to feel uneasy about the future of gas prices as they are sending mixed messages.

It shouldn't matter that gasoline and distillate inventories increased 12 million barrels. Since crude oil inventories decreases by a couple million barrels they have a great reason to raise the price of gas.
