The Energy Information Administration released its weekly report on the status of petroleum inventories in the United States today. 
Here are some highlights:

CRUDE INVENTORIES:
Crude oil inventories decreased by 0.6 million barrels to a total of 386.3 million barrels. At 386.3 million barrels, inventories are 7.8 million barrels below last year (-2.0%) and are in the upper half of the average range for this time of year.

GASOLINE INVENTORIES:
Gasoline inventories increased by 0.8 million barrels to 214.3 million barrels. At 214.3 million barrels, inventories are down 7.5 million barrels, or 3.4% lower than one year ago. Here's how individual regions and their gasoline inventory fared last week: East Coast (+1.4mb); Midwest (+1.1mb); Gulf Coast (-2.5mb); Rockies (-0.1mb); and West Coast (+1.0mb). It is important to note which regions saw increases/decreases as this information likely drives prices up (in the case of falling

"dives" is hardly the word. Dropping a few pennies isn't what I would call a dive.

The thing that is very wrong with the picture is north America has no cheap oil-no matter how much they extract,period-and if you think about it for a minute-you already knew that-there is nothing new about fracking,horizontal drilling-they were old tech. in the 40s and sand tar is basically the same technique,but even more expensive-the lifting costs alone of these resources are three and four times what we paid for market price oil before the last Iraq war--in fact without shutting down and splitting up Iraq's huge oceans of cheap easy to access high quality oil-frack/shale and sand tar oil stays in the ground----the only thing new in oil/fuel the last 11 years when it comes to north American oil,is manipulated world oil prices high enough for more extraction possibilities(frack/shale/sand tar)by force--war,propaganda war on Venezuela,sanctions on Iran,trade law changes ect. if the price drops much below $100.00 per barrel sand tar oil becomes less than viable,below $80.00 frack oil becomes less than viable---and we need $50.00 per barrel oil,and in reality less than that-so if we are ever going to do something about the ridiculous price of oil/fuel,(and I doubt that)-we have a long up hill battle-that ends with oil from true oil rich countries.

Prices should be plunging then not increasing by 20c a gal, if a few radicals in Iraq can do this there is something very wrong with the picture.

The middle east and Venezuela is where cheap oil comes from---without shutting down and splitting up Iraq's giant cheap oil fields 11 years ago(and several other major factors during the same time period) ,fracking/horizontal drilling and steaming tar oil out of sand pits would be impossible-the middle east,and Venezuela can drown us in cheap oil if they want to,but why would they now?--------the higher the world market price of oil,the more extraction posibilities--without sky high world market prices,frack/shale/tar oil stays in the ground-And if the middle east blows up again,oil prices will go up even higher again,just like from 1973 through 1984 and 2003 through now.In other words without sky high world oil prices,frack/shale/tar oil are not even posibilities.
