Crude usually decreases when Refinery output increases. Just converting more & faster for a time. It all comes out in the wash. later the crude will catch up or the refineries will decrease allowing crude inv. to increase. Unless one or the other pulls a slow down or maint etc.

Gasoline inventories rise again, refinery utilization jumps and may it lower fuel prics at the pump.
Crude oil inventories decreased, Gasoline inventories increased, Distillate inventories decreased, Refinery utilization incrreased 1.1% from last week numbers, Total US oil stocks are up 5.7% over last year.
Crude oil inventories have decreased, Gasoline inventories increased, US oil stocks increased but there are still high fuel prices at the pump but prices are slowly improving to more reasonable prices. The fuel prices at the pump should be lower to help the economy recover more!
More Refineries are Not the answer, Stop exporting that fuel is!
Big Oil and Big Gas continues to sell fuel and natural gas on the world market for higher prices. 'Coming out of the closet' Sneeky's lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, the jobs are Not here. Sneeky's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population and the job numbers continue to be down! People will still drive and buy fuel no matter what but it sure helps to have a job too!
The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens! Speculators, manipulators and the banks continue to unfairly and unjustly make the driving public pay higher prices at the pump for their personal greedy benefit.
The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon - *$3, *$3.50/gallon or *$4.00 is Not the new low!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!
