The only thing going up faster than the price of crude is the size of the inventories. Crude inventories havn't been this high since May 1998. It would seem that higher inventories do not keep crude from going up. Maybe Crude would be $80 if not for the high inventory? The price of crude seems to move as it wishes with little correlation to anything. Inventories reported by the gvt are definitely near irrelevant it would seem.
