inventories are no indicator of prices at the pump. Pieces of useless information.

What a bunch of BS - cut refinery production - keep cost of gas up - export excess oil. And we give these companies tax breaks!!!!

If refineries can't, or won't, why do we need all these new pipelines.

Now that Hurricane Isaac is well past, why is refinery production still down? Why are crude oil and gasoline inventories down? This doesn't make sense.

Meanwhile, we're seeing a gradual easing of gas prices in our area -- thank goodness!

Ever since BIG OIL started exporting large quantities of refined gasoline elsewhere, we have endured manipulated supply. The best answer to this issue is to nationalize the oil companies in the USA.

How can oil AND gasoline inventories both drop? Are people driving more? - I think not. Are the oil companies importing less oil, but are sell more refined products overseas? - I suspect so.

I think we need to have laws about where they can sell american crude oil to help keep prices down here.
