MARKET WATCH: Oil prices continue to waffle

Oil & Gas Journal -- Oil prices continued retreating with front-month crude down 1.4% in the New York futures market July 30 but rose at midday July 31 after the Energy Information Administration reported the first increase in US crude inventories in 5 weeks. Natural gas prices continued to slide, down 0.4% at yesterday’s close.

In equity trading, analysts in the Houston office of Raymond James & Associates Inc. reported, “The stock market was underwhelmed by President Barack Obama's tax-cut-shaped olive branch yesterday. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index closed less than a tenth of a percent higher than where it started. This probably isn’t surprising since the two parties in Washington remain at loggerheads about how potential revenues should be spent.”

Carefully watch the price difference between WTI and Brent oil. Early in the year, WTI was over $22/barrel cheaper. A couple of weeks ago, WTI was more expensive. Now, WTI is about $3/barrel cheaper. Because of the cost of extracting oil with the new WTI wells, WTI may not be competitive anymore.

As long as oil remains above $100/barrel, it threatens to push our economy into recession.

And the roller coaster ride of gas prices continues! The bottom line is that Obama has done nothing to control oil speculation/prices, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, or improve our economy. His sole agenda is to cater to his tree hugging, stimulus sucking, union dominated, ultral liberal major contributors. As a result, we continue to be screwed at the pump, with our utilities, & with our taxes. Nothing will change as long as Obama is in office & controls the Senate. 2014 Elections are coming - stop this madness!!

No reason to "waffle" - we are swimming in crude - it's the oil companies setting the price since domestic oil is not subject to global pricing
