Futures were 0.4 percent higher in New York after climbing 0.5 percent yesterday. Crude inventories fell 2.3 million barrels last week, the first drop in six weeks, data from the industry-funded API showed yesterday.

Gas went up $0.20 / gallon. Gas went down $0.10 / gallon. Gas went up $0.20 / gallon. Gas is now starting to go down. With this pattern, it won't be long before gas is $4.xx9 / gallon.

Earlier in the week the report said oil prices were falling. That didn't last.

“Declining inventory levels in the U.S.” are supporting prices, said Carsten Fritsch".

And apparently, climbing inventory never lowers crude prices.

Don't believe a word of this API report. Wait till 10:30am to see the EIA report.

"Crude inventories fell 2.3 million barrels last week, the first drop in six weeks"....the first DROP in six weeks.....yet gas price have been consistently climbing at a record pace the past six weeks WHILE supplies were increasing!

"Declining inventory levels in the U.S.” are supporting prices"...I say bull to that. If that were truly the case than the increases in the previous five weeks SHOULD be lowering prices....didn't happen!!!!
