Oil Falls as Mideast Supply Worries Fade

Fox Business -- Published August 29, 2013
Reuters

Brent crude slipped below $116 a barrel on Thursday, taking a breather after clocking its strongest 2-day gain since January 2012 over fears of oil-supply disruptions in the Middle East as western nations prepared to get involved in the Syrian conflict.

The West is gearing up for a military strike against Syria in response to last week's chemical weapons attack, although U.S. President Barack Obama faced new obstacles with British allies and U.S. lawmakers that could delay any imminent action.

Brent crude for October delivery was at $115.87, down 74 cents by 0313 GMT, after rising more than 5 percent in the last two sessions.

This use of gas is outrages, on the other hand it is a internal matter, and at this time I see no reason for us to stick our nose into it without the complete support of the world.

Oil Falls as Mideast Supply Worries Fade. Local gas prices have been going up slightly, I hope prices continue to hold or go down BUT there is a holiday coming up! Take care of the domestic fuel market first and above all else before exporting and selling fuel or natural gas to other countries!
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

"few get into on Barrack Obama say so the American people should impeach right out of office before he gets any more American killed. Oh! he got us out Iraq okay and get us into something else, remember he doesn't care what he does this is is last term and none of his kids will be going into combat"

I'm sorry, but it's hard to take the substance of comments like this seriously when it contains such poor grammar. Is there a complete sentence in there somewhere?

Well they were not really worried but needed another excuse to stick it to the consumer. The US is currently exporting more oil than importing oil. Nobody screws the American Consumer like Big Oil!

"Drill here, drill now, drill often."

Sorry but "We are. We are, and We are." Too bad that Big Oil just exports it all away and the price of gas here still stays high.

"Crude stocks at Cushing, Oklahoma, have dropped 26 percent since the end of June to 36.59 million barrels, falling 837,000 barrels last week."

That's because Big Oil is pushing that crude out to the refineries on the coast where the petroleum products can be exported away for top dollar.
