    It will drop to shut people up for awhile. Then it will jump up even higher than before. That is how it always happens.

    The freeway system in Southern California is in such a mess right now. Much of it was designed and built decades ago with orders of magnitude less cars on the road. Today, there's no space to build new highways where they're needed, nor even widen existing ones. So the only option is to reduce the number of cars, yet the number of cars continues to increase and the freeway system gets ever more congested. Now we're finally seeing some relief on it.

    Prices should drop after Labor Day and steadily fall until Dec/Jan and then rebound in late March/April. This is all assuming Israel doesn't nuke Iran or some refinery doesn't explode.

    Question

    Is it because the US is still filling the reserves to compensate for less fuel being used by the populace???
    (even after Congress asked to stop doing it)

    Because I think we all see that SUV's and Truck sales are dying.....
    So how is this possible?? Any interpretation you can share on this??

    Riddle me this . . . oil peaked at $147 a barrel in early July which translated into $4.12 national ave gas prices. In just one month oil has now tumbled 19.5% to settle at just under $119 today and gas . . . . . . is at $3.87 national average, just a 6.5% reduction. Still think you're not getting screwed?
