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.

The moves follow March crude’s 80-cent advance in Tuesday’s floor session on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Those gains came in the wake of upbeat German data, and as the S&P 500 rallied to a new five-year high. Read: Oil futures end higher, back above $96 a barrel.

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

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.
