Oil hits 4-month high on US economic data, Algeria

Seattle Times -- NEW YORK — The price of oil rose to a four-month high Thursday on positive reports about the U.S. economy.

Benchmark oil gained $1.25 to finish at $95.49 a barrel, the highest close for crude on the New York Mercantile Exchange since Sept. 17. Oil has now gained 4 percent this year.

Strong reports on housing starts and fewer unemployment claims made traders more optimistic about the U.S. economy. Builders started work on homes in December at the fastest pace since the summer of 2008, and the number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits fell to a five-year low last week. Both reports could signal greater demand for fuel.

Meanwhile Brent crude, used to price international varieties of oil, rose $1.42 to end at $110.10 per barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London.

Price of gas in your tank does not change after you buy it.

CRUDE price takes a while to work through system.

=====================

Reply Posted 11-18: Gasoline prices have increased in my area by .37 cents a gallon in the last 3 days!! A 13% increase in the cost of gasoline!!

It didn't take long for the price of crude to work it's way through our system of local gas stations.

We are on the fast track to gasoline price increases... thanks to traders (traitors) speculators.

Oil has now gained 4 percent this year. A positive report for the oil industry and speculators.

And the American consumer has lost a lot more in the price of gasoline! 

Economic reports could signal greater demand for fuel. "Could" signal greater demand for fuel.

Traders (traitors) are more optimistic about the U.S. economy and early speculating on how the economy will go... will cost us all. 

Gasoline prices have increased in my area by .37 cents a gallon in the last 3 days!!!!!!!! A 13% increase in the cost of gasoline!!

Here comes more increased costs for business owners and industry. Additional costs that will be passed onto the American consumers.

The negative side for consumers on a positive report for the oil industry and oil traders (traitors).

A previous post noted usage was down. So I guess we leave it up to investors to get those prices back up. While it may benefit the speculator, it is not good for my wallet at the pump.

Algeria isn't a problem. Those fool militants will find themselves at the bottom of the Indian Ocean if they aren't very, very careful.

American's ought to be thankful they get a lot of their crude at almost $20/bbl off world prices. Crude out of Canada is selling in the US for more than $30/bbl off Brent pricing thanks to the glut at Cushing, OK.
