Biden Reversing Energy Course to Curb Prices

During a time with consumers seeing some of the highest oil prices in recent memory, the Biden Administration now seeks the help of the industry he spent much time trying to change.

Fuel Sheds 3+ Cents on Lost Unemployment Benefits

Following a long holiday weekend, fuel markets are opening this morning with moderate losses.

Ida Knocks Out Supply and Demand, Leaving Markets Neutral

Although the morning opened with a steep selloff, prices have recovered most of those losses. Prices leaped higher as Hurricane Ida approached the Gulf Coast, but gains are subsiding slowly.

Prices Slip as Delta Variant Cases Increase

Week In Review – July 9, 2021

After a long string of oil price gains, oil prices fell this week as the OPEC meeting last week crumbled.

Traders fear that the UAE and other […]
