But, here in California, the lowest prices at the pump are nudging upwards while the highs are slowly coming down, making the average relatively stable, for now, with slight rises and dips in the overall daily average. So, an increase in supply only keeps the average stable, at best?

The laws of supply and demand indicate that fuel costs should go down. But we all know they won't (if anything, they'll go up!)

Unfortunately inventory levels do not affect prices unless it works in the right direction.

I'm certain Romney's Republican speculator buddies will make certain retail prices won't drop.

prices went up 20 cents here yesterday. of course gas inventories have increased, people are out of work and with the limited income they have they can buy gas or heat their home.

Could speculators be controlling the prices?

Doesn't matter, prices are still creeping up in CT.

This is direct price gouging and supply manipulation by Big Oil.
