Doug: and Pig Oil COULD EASILY prevent the breakdown of the refineries. Fires are avoidable with good maintenance and safety measures. Pig Oil does not care to maintain the refineries b/c it means higher prices, more profits (from non-maintenance costs and extra fuel prices).

Dollar index is now down to 80.24. Obama keeps spending, debt and deficits are growing at RECORD pace. As Obama's dollar continues to have downward pressure, oil and gas prices will continue upward pressure!

We have a President who publicly stated that $5 would be a good price for gasoline. We a had a candidate that MAY have won the popular vote, in Al Gore. He wrote a book in which he said $5 gas would be a good thing! And many of the posters on this site BLAME speculators? Are you kidding me? Many speculators want four more years of Obama! And of course, Obama loves when YOU blame speculators.

KEEP YOUR TANKS FULL! I've Warned for almost two months that "experts" and "pundits" in the field were not understanding why gasoline prices would rise to $4. (Prices were near $3 at the time.) I WARNED that prices would drop some after hitting $4, but NOT MUCH, and that has been the case. Now I WARN, that gas prices will not see the usual drop in prices that they normally see after "driving season". Why?....For months, refineries have been running full steam. MORE than a handful have broken down. Some have caught on fire!!!! Supply/demand condition are under pressure. The tropical storm only added to the EXISTING PROBLEM. It will take weeks and not months to be corrected. Adding to the problem is OBAMA'S weak dollar caused by his record debt and deficit spending. Spending goes up, dollar tends to go down= oil/gas prices tend to go up!!!!!

EIA is a valuable source of objective information about our supplies of petroleum and the factors affecting our supplies. The only people who want EIA done away with are those who simply have no judgment and believe almost all government is bad.

As usual, topics like this are just another reason for a feeding frenzy by the Hard Right who think they know everything.
