Oil Declines as Norway Ends Strike, China Curbs Imports

Bloomberg -- Oil dropped from the highest close in two days after Norway ended an energy strike that threatened to halt production by western Europe’s largest crude exporter and China curbed purchases of the commodity.

Futures slipped as much as 1.6 percent after the Norwegian government ordered compulsory arbitration in the dispute, preventing a lockout of platform workers that was scheduled to start at midnight yesterday. Norway pumped 1.63 million barrels of oil a day in May, or about 1.8 percent of global consumption, data from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate show.

We are supposed to listen to some analyst that works at a company called "Fat Prophets?" Gas prices go up because of a decrease in production from Norway?!

China was buying lots of oil a short time ago. Did they buy too much?

Yes, yes oil is down, oil is down. But, somehow, gasoline is still up (or at least not down nearly as much as oil). How can that be?

Hard to tell. It hasn't impacted local prices yet. If the story was China places more orders, norway set to strike prices would spike overnight.

WTI crude and CHICAGO gasoline prices dropped 2.4% today.

It will take a week to drift down the same amount.

Of course the rascals immediately raise pump price like a rocket upon rising market prices.

When market drops, like today, pump price drifts down like a feather.

It's all part of the gouging process. We know the drill but can do nothing about it other than minimize our costs.

Oil is still way too high. This just demonstrates that the speculators just can't wait to run up prices.

Oil definitely should not have jumped the over $8/barrel that it did. This is such a game that the speculators play and we are along for the ride whether we like it or not.
