    ...reportedly another reason for crude oil price rise is the expectation of another round of QE3 quantitative easing by the Fed and to similar action in EU. This is causing stock markets to rise in anticipation and oil price follows stock prices closely right now.

    One great thing about getting 60+mpg is that when gas prices rise you tend to barely notice. :) a even with gas at $3.899 I went 665miles and it only cost $40. :)

    It will take a while until I get the tags and technical details worked out. However, you can see the initial effects of the Chevron refinery fire.
