Brent Down $1 as Hurricane Avoids Oil Platforms

Reuters -- North Sea Brent crude oil fell more than $1 per barrel on Wednesday as Hurricane Isaac, which hit land in Louisiana, left U.S. Gulf Coast oil production facilities without significant damage.

Worries about supply disruptions resulting from the hurricane pushed Brent to a high of $115.50 per barrel on Monday, while Nymex futures hit a peak of $97.72.

Brent crude oil futures for October [LCOCV1 112.03 -0.55 (-0.49%) ] were down 90 cents per barrel at $111.68 after hitting an intra-day low of $111.50.

U.S. light crude oil [CLCV1 95.56 -0.77 (-0.8%) ] was down 80 cents at $95.53.

So oil prices decreased and gasoline prices in Atlanta spiked from $3.69 to $3.94 - GREEDY Esso-Bees.

Big oil is like Pfizer, jacking their prices because they were losing money.

what is really dumb about all this is gas in MI went up over 30 cents (they are blaming the Issac. yet my friend near Pensecola said gas only went up there about 5 cents. does not make any sense!!! but then i guess i wasn't really expecting it to.

So Brent went down a dollar, so what? The big guys aren't going to loose any sleep over it and the consumer isn't going to save anything at the pumps, so what do I care about Brent going down a dollar

It not only could it should go down more. Instead of waiting to see if the hurricane was going to hit Gulf production, prices started going up on the possibility that it would.
