It is that time of year. This is to be expected. what will be interesting is how high prices will go once we are all on summer blend. It would be nice to just stick with one version across the country.

Gotta keep the price of fuel high to be able to make a profit from steaming tar off of sand and spliting rocks with diesel fuel and water---because guess what--It is very expensive,many more times as expensive as oil in true oil rich nations..........and it always will be.

Refinery maintenance continues, gasoline supply falls. Crude oil inventories increased, Gasoline inventories decreased, Refinery production increased 1%, - **so higher prices at the pump and up? *Big Oil's profits continue to rise at our expense. Big Oil can charge whatever they want at the pump and we will never have any other option but to pay, pay, pay!
Crude oil inventories increased, Gasoline inventories decreased, Distillate inventories decreased, Refinery utilization increased 1% from last week, Total US oil stocks down 5.5% over last year and there are still high fuel prices at the pump! The fuel prices at the pump should be much lower for 'coming out of the closet' Sneekers666 'spending gone wild' very bad 'in the crapper' 'dog and pony show' socialist economy to recover just a little more than what it's ever going to do otherwise! Rockets and Feathers at work! Need more Rocks, Bigger Rocks! Boulders!
Surprise! Surprise! E-I-A, E-I-A, E--I--E--I----O!
Big Oil and Big Gas sells fuel and natural gas on the world market for higher prices. 'Coming out of the closet' Sneekers666 lousy, spending gone wild, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and 'in the crapper' economy, the jobs are Not here. Sneekers666 economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population and the job numbers continue to be down!
Can't wait for Sneekers666 to fade away like it was a very bad eight year nightmare! The Sooner, The Better! This Economy and Nation has suffered more than enough!!!!!
The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens! The price at the pump needs to go down to $2.50/gallon -> *$3, or *$3.50/gallon is Not the new low!
**More Refineries are Not the Answer, Stop Exporting Fuel Is THE Answer!
*If 'they' can export that much fuel, there are enough refineries already, there are NO need for MORE Refineries! OR for any Refineries located at the 'source' of the domestic crude oil!
Take care of the domestic fuel market first and above all else before exporting and selling fuel or natural gas to other countries!
Local fuel prices have stayed the same at some gas stations or are down 10 cents at some stations but there is still a long way to go ---->>>>> DOWN!
This sounds like prejacu---, ahhhhhh, manipulation to me!

Drive vehicles with high mpg, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

crude up/gas down. crude down/gas up. as less crude is made into gas, the crude goes up and gas comes down.

Maintenance is a part of refinery operation. We need more refinery capacity and it should be spread around more.

That is why the EPA needs to relax regulations to allow new refineries to be built.

What are you talking about, it's already 4.00 a gallon here in Hawaii! I'm thinking we will hit $5.00 a gallon this summer.

My Chevy astro V-6 gets about 15 MPG. My Prius gets about 50 MPG. I do whatever I can to avoid driving the Chevy because the Prius gets such amazing mileage that it has become extremely painful to drive the Chevy. All we have here in Hawaii is stop and go traffic. Our gas prices are currently above $4.00 a gallon. Try sitting in traffic 4 hours a day in the hot sun idling your gasoline away, it's enough to make you insane!
