Prices will have to fall when nobody can afford to buy gas. It's just too hard to get blood out of a rock.

We shouldn't have to worry about any of this. We are sitting on one of the largest fields of oil in the world. Who's steering this ship anyway......? ; (

Just like candy bars, the package is the same size but the bar inside is smaller. Big oil is paying less for barrel & charging us more per gallon

It has been proven repeatedly over the last several months/years that the pump price is totally upwardly independent, irrespective of how low the price of a barrel of crude may fall.

How can oil be falling with such a robust, recovering economy that we have. At least that is what Obama keeps saying. Things sure look rosey when your wearing rose colored glasses.

More pipeline capacity between Cushing and the coast should help bring down Brent and help close the gap with WTI. Of course Keystone XL would have helped too, if it hadn't been blocked for years.
