    If you are a Southerner, & you are yet to realize that the core-north, is at war with the south, then you are sleeping on a bicycle.
    If the north should ban agricultural produce like beef & Onions to the south, then the south must cut her palm & crude oil produce to the north.

Crude Oil: Ain’t No Stopping Us Now

In fact, since the beginning of the year, crude oil prices have risen over $20/bbl (left chart, green line vs yellow line)….In addition, monthly spread backwardation has also increased by more than $ 0.60/bbl since the beginning of the year (right chart, green line vs yellow line)….U.S. imports of gasoline and blending components typically rise in the summer months….Several significant supply events have forced East Coast markets — where a high percentage of gasoline imports land — to rely on outside product more than usual because of the rationalization of refining capacity in PADD 1….It should be noted that several gasoline components that might fall under gasoline blending component umbrella like naphtha, reformate and alkylate are not subject to RINs. As of last Friday’s close, the spread between US ethanol and US gasoline futures was almost $10/bbl (blue line below)….However, even demand picking up in those parts of the world is not likely to deter hefty imports coming to the U.S. as gasoline prices in the futures market and in U.S. spot markets trade at multi-year highs.
