Crude Oil Prices
The United States exported more 430,000 barrels of gasoline a day than imported in September. This number is twice the amount at the start of the year and experts believe this number will only increase. This is a trend that was first notice in the 2008. Until then, the United States has had to import gas from other countries for domestic use. However, demand for gas has decreased nearly 10% in the past few years.

The big question surrounding all of this is why are oil prices still on the rise if we have more than enough crude oil for gasoline?
"I can understand it, from a truck driver's perspective," "You're paying $4 or $4.50 a gallon to run your rig, yet we're exporting the crap out of this fuel. I'd be outraged too."
