The Department of Energy released its weekly report on the condition of petroleum inventories in the United States today.

Here are some highlights:

Crude oil inventories increased by 0.7 million barrels to a total of 361.2 million barrels. At 361.2 million barrels, inventories are 22.1 million barrels above last year (6.5%) and remain above average. Supply at NYMEX delivery point, Cushing, Oklahoma decreased 1.1 million barrels to 34.0 million barrels this week.

Gasoline inventories increased 1.2 million barrels to 219.3 million barrels. At 219.3 million barrels, inventories are now 12.4 million barrels, or 6.0% higher than last year (last week that number was 4.3% higher). Decreases were seen on the East Coast...

Anyone here realize the tremendous demands the unions place on oil companies here? The price for that (and legacy costs) are factored into our gas prices.

Think twice when you hear a politician say he wants the Employee Free Choice Act = this act guarantees that a person HAS NO choice.

Just one factor in all those involved in gas prices.

And the prices for a barrel of crude oil keep going up. We already know this but we must help keep the DOE personnel's jobs.

If you drive by Cushing on the Interstate, you won't see much. You have to get down into the bowels of town to see the tank farm. But it's still the place for oil if you're buying in quantity...

Numbers, numbers, numbers. It's the Feds policies of zero
rates & printing money. This Administration's $Trillions
of borrowing & spending, causing the very weak $US vs the
Euro. Crude remains priced in $US & crude continues to climb.

Things eventually will change for the consumer when government gets the balls to regulate the market speculation causing such huge price changes.

Pump prices skyrocketed in the last week in part to the very minor reduction in inventory. Ya think they'll drop the same amount now that we're again seeing an increase in inventory? Me neither...

yep, this is the new rules of economics:

big supplies = higher cost
fewer oil rigs online = higher cost
lower supplies = higher cost
more oil rigs online = higher cost
(fill in the blank) = higher costs.
