Price of oil dropping.

FINANCE - Oil prices extend decline, drops below $127 - Top News - Comcast.net

If oil is dropping or "tumbling" as the article say....like its a bad thing then why is my diesel going up here in little rock? makes no sense to me.

it's called "Oil Futures". the price per barrell is what companies will pay several weeks/months from now.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

gotcha...so by then the future price will have gone up again.. and we will never see change? therefore the oil company just "eats" the excess profit?

If thats the case then why is it when oil goes up, fuel prices go up? To me the futures price is reflected in our fuel prices immediately. Up not down by the way.

Yeah they always say that they have to raise the price of fuel immidiatly to cover costs when oil prices go up, but say that fuel prices can't go down until the fuel made with the cheaper oil gets to the pump. All just double talk to keep makin the big profits.
