Oil sees choppy trade ahead of inventory data

MarketWatch -- U.S. oil futures edged higher in choppy electronic trade Wednesday as investors looked ahead to weekly inventory reports.

Crude oil for March delivery were little changed, gaining 2 cents to trade at $96.68 a barrel, ahead of the contract’s expiration at the end of the global day.

Unless oil goes down we will be heading into a serious recession. Gas went up 21 cents a liter in the last 10 days.

Obama should be shutting down Wall Street's access to the Futures Market in oil. Maybe it will slow the up prices of the spectulators.

Inventory on oil is BS. As long as we have lawmakers in Washington that is trying their best to turn our country into capitalist country the price of gas will keep going up.
