Crude-Oil Futures Rally Stalls Below $96 a Barrel

Rig Zone -- NEW YORK--Crude-oil futures prices ended slightly weaker Friday amid mixed economic signals and concerns about refinery maintenance curbing near-term U.S. oil demand.

Traders said disappointing data on U.S. new home sales in December negated the impact of day-earlier figures showing a five-year low in weekly jobless claims. The Commerce Department said home sales dropped by 7.3% from November, to 369,000 homes. That fell short of forecasts for sales of 385,000 homes in the month.

With the shine off the economic picture, the focus shifted to bearish U.S. oil data, which showed refiner demand for crude oil last week was cut dramatically--to a 20-month low--by operating snags and seasonal maintenance.

Gas prices have been going up in FL. since the 1st of the year. We really need to drill more in the U.S. & get these prices down.

I find it sad that oil goes up and down on the whim of what is being reported....jobs lost.....oil goes down.....houses built.....oil goes up....the dollar is weak....oil goes up.....economy looking poorly....oil goes down.....refinery fires....oil goes up.....you get the picture. The reporting of any small thing, sends the speculators into a buying/selling frenzy depending on the basis of the article.

This stalled rally surely didn't stop wholesale gasoline prices from rising.

$5/gal gas is exactly what the progressive liberals want for their socialist marxis agenda. Remember Reid, Pelosi, Chu and Obama all wanted the $5 plane to push the little people into hybrids and EVs, all between $39-$51, a price range that most people can't afford.

With the existing inventories crude should be selling for about $76 tankers are anchoring off the coast of up to 25 days because they have no place to empty their tanks all the retainer tanks on land or fool or they are taking them to Mexico

Crude goes down and pump prices go up. I'm beginning to think that the gas companies are just out to make money and aren't there to make my life better.
