Another interesting time where the pump prices skyrocketed immediately and we wait and wait and wait and wait and wait for the drip down when oil drops

Hopefully the price is still down at the close of the contract. It usually falls in time to buy and miraculously recovers just in time to close the contract. market manipulation anyone?

It seems at some point somebody would figure out that this lousy economy will not support the artificially high prices. Considering the track record of the POTUS, there will not be any improvement in the economy for at least another 4 years.

Inventories up, crude oil prices down, price at the pump keeps going up. When is the government going to step in and deal with these price gouging crooks?

Oil needs to be about half what it currently is based up growing inventory levels and slightly receeding demand.

This brings up an old question. What is the difference between a wholesale price increase and wholesale price decrease? Republican speculators make more money with a wholesale price decrease.
