BigH: you're right. Hence my comment about Pig Oil not seeing any reason to drop prices.

Come on now, it is just greed. Prices on the market are down. Guess have to pay for all those big bonuses to their employees, while most of us are trying to make it in 2014.

with the crazy weather, there's no reason for Pig Oil to drop prices at the pump.

Without sky high world oil prices, increased north American oil production would simply be impossible(you also need the legal ability to contaminate surface and ground water) the fact that we are seeing prices of $3.00 per gallon and slightly under $3.00 per gallon is a miracle with crude oil at the ridiculous price of $95.00 per barrel-the last time we saw crude oil dip under the $50.00 range was during the peak of the great recession,we saw gasoline go just under $2.00 per gallon for a short time until the market came back up-but $1.00 more at the pump for a $45.00 increase per barrel of crude oil tells me they are not making much at that price....diesel is a different story.I am still very confused as to how so many people are expecting cheap fuel out of the most expensive to develop and extract crude oil on the planet(frack,shale and steam tar)cheap oil comes from the middle east and Venezuela and nowhere else--and we blew that ten years ago.

Nope, gas prices will not go down past $3.00 a gallon. In my area, every time the price dips under $3/gal someone freaks out and jacks the price up 20 cents a gallon which causes all the other local stations to follow suit. Then the price starts to settle again... I've watched it happen over and over this last year. Rigged for profit!

ItisAJeepThing - "Refineries need timely preventative maintenance to avoid costly, long term shutdown due to accidents."

No, no, that can't be true, can it? You mean they can't just run refineries at 100% capacity 24/7/365 without repercussion? ;-)

I would agree on the exporting of refined fuels, except that if refiners can't export the fuel they can't sell or pipe to other parts of the US, they would probably cut back on production so they don't have to store the excess. And storage ain't cheap, as I'm sure you are well aware of. :-)

Refineries need timely preventative maintenance to avoid costly, long term shutdown due to accidents.

We need to prohibit the overseas export of any American refined fuels until retail prices come down.

Hopefully there will be a significant increase, so that we can see some more relief at the pump soon.

Inventories are up as refineries go down? It should be prices at the pump going down when inventories are high.

Usually inventory increases spell a decrease in prices...not so in this rip off industry.
