The Story Behind US Gas Price Pain / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Marin_Katusa

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey Research writes: Gasoline consumption in the United States has been dropping for years. In the last decade, vehicle fuel efficiency has improved by 20%, and the combination of that shift and a weak economy of late has pushed gasoline demand to its lowest level in a decade.

At the same time, US oil production is at its highest level in a decade. Deepwater wells in the Gulf of Mexico and horizontal fracs in the Bakken shale have turned America's domestic oil production scene around. After 20 years of declining production, US crude output rates started to climb in 2008 and have increased every year since.

Gas Prices as an Indicator of Energy Costs / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe consumer does not need more reminders about the pain experienced with every fill up at the pump. The drain on your pocketbook is growing. During economic dislocation and diminished vitality any prospects of a turnaround dim as gas approaches $4.00 a gallon and beyond. Been here before and the idea that this time the economy will be less effected is unreasonable. The cost for all energy is rising but the impact of gas prices has a personal burden on everyday budgets. The Price of Fuel provides a useful synopsis.

No Easy Fix for Gas Prices / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis month, as unleaded gasoline prices increased for 17 consecutive days (to a national average of $3.647 per gallon - up 11% thus far this year) and West Texas Intermediate crude joined Brent crude in breaking through a $100 per barrel level, energy prices emerged as a full blown political issue. While President Obama conveniently claimed that rising prices were the consequence of an improving economy (they're not, and it isn't) Republican fingers began to point sanctimoniously at current drilling policies. And while none of the accusers had any idea why prices were actually going up, the award for the most dangerous 'solution' must go to Bill O'Reilly at Fox News. The master of the "No Spin Zone" announced that high pump prices could be permanently brought down by a presidential order to restrict exports of refined gasoline. Not only does Mr. O'Reilly's idea demonstrate contempt for the U.S. Constitution but it also displays a thorough lack of economic understanding.

The Split Personality of Gasoline and Diesel / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: EconMatters

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCrude oil tanked to its lowest in more than six weeks, amid a broad selloff in other commodities and equities with investors increasing fear of another global recession after the U.S. Federal Reserve warned of "significant downside risks" to the U.S. economy on Thursday, Sept. 22. Oil prices plunged $5.00 a barrel on that day, and as of Friday, Sept. 23, WTI sank to $79.96 a barrel, while the ever relentless Brent also retreated to $103.97.

U.S. Consumers Have Big Banks To Blame For High Gasoline Prices / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a bit of irony here in that the very same banks that taxpayers bailed out, and saved from going completely belly up, are now making you pay once again in the form of higher Oil prices, and the resultant higher gasoline prices at the pump (Fig. 1). Don`t be fooled by the rhetoric generated in the media by the Big Banks regarding the Middle East.

Gasoline: No Cure For High Prices Like High Prices / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCrude oil market has been on a wild roller coaster ride ever since riots started escalating in Egypt and Libya. The latest Libyan supply disruptions sent WTI futures surging above $103 a barrel in New York on Thursday, Feb. 24, while Brent oil in Europe was also closing in on $120 a barrel.

However, both oil markers retreated mostly due to traders scrambling to reposition when NYMEX and ICE boosted margin requirements on oil futures as crude traded above $100 a barrel.

Rare Earths Affecting Gas Prices / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Anthony_David

A Reuters poll indicates that oil prices in 2011 will be driven largely by Chinese demand and reach a little over $90 a barrel. Prices, however, are unlikely to cross the $100 mark given the high global inventories. Further, the current landscape is unlike that of 2008 when the supply-demand gap was massive enough to drive prices up to $147.27 per barrel.

What You Should Do to Cut Your Energy Bill / Personal_Finance / Gas - Petrol

By: Sean_Brodrick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA Modern American uses about as much energy as a blue whale. That’s not an easy feat, considering that blue whales outweigh us — even us supersized Americans — 2,285 to 1. But this has consequences for the whole world because the whole world wants to live like big, fat Americans, and the world can’t support 7 billion blue whales.

Gas Prices are Headed Higher – Here's How to Profit / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: As Money Morning predicted in its 2011 Outlook for oil prices, crude is poised to surge over $100 a barrel this year. And gas prices are likely to follow suit - perhaps even testing their record high above $4 a gallon.

In fact, one expert - former president of Shell Oil John Hoffmeister - predicts prices at the pump will top $5 a gallon.

While declining oil prices over the last week have not necessarily caught the attention of consumers as much as they have speculators and impacted businesses, falling gas prices have. Friday (January 22) marked the seventh consecutive day of falling fuel prices with the current national average at $2.73, according to Wright Express and the Oil Price Information Service.

Gas Prices Rollercoaster: Why Energy and Infrastructure Are Inextricably Linked / Commodities / Gas - Petrol

By: Investment_U

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePresident-elect Obama takes office in less than a week's time. While many will be watching closely to see how he handles the ongoing financial crisis, I'll be equally interested to see how he handles a far more ominous one: our ongoing energy and infrastructure crisis. Regular readers know I believe energy and infrastructure are inextricably combined. We need cheap energy to fuel sustained economic growth. And we need infrastructure in place to move and dispense the energy from its source to its destination. Today I'm going to give you a perfect example of how the two are intertwined, and how one can play off the other to create a positive benefit for all.

How Foreign Policy Affects Gas Prices / Politics / Gas - Petrol

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

We've heard how the value of the dollar affects gas prices - and indeed the price of everything. I was pleased that my request for a hearing on such was granted by the Financial Services committee and we were able to hear some very informative testimony. Certainly domestic policies, regarding off-shore oil drilling bans, ethanol mandates, refining capacity, and CAFE standards are interventionist and harmful enough in the energy market.
