Record Prices Curb U.S. Fuel Demand

Crude oil fell on signs that U.S.and Europe fuel consumption is dropping because of a slowing economy and record energy prices. Energy and metals have become attractive in the past year to those seeking to offset the dollar's fall against the euro. Speculators were unable to hold last week's new highs, indicating that the rally may be over for now. We might be headed for $120 in the near term.

Crude oil for July delivery fell $3.34, to settle at $128.85 a barrel at 2:53 p.m. on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It was the biggest one-day drop since April 29. Futures reached $135.09 on May 22, the highest since trading began in 1983, and have doubled over the past year.

Brent crude oil for July settlement declined $4.06, to settle at $128.31 a barrel on London's ICE Futures Europe exchange, the biggest one-day drop since March 31. The contract touched a record $135.14 on May 22.

After failing to break through $135 decisively last week, it appears crude reached a resistance line there... High energy prices are having a substantial impact on the economy and potentially on demand ... The euro reversed gains versus the dollar after reports showed German consumer confidence fell more than economists forecast and French business confidence declined to the weakest in more than two years in May.

The euro fell to $1.5718, from $1.5770 yesterday, after rising to $1.5818, the highest level since April 24. The peak U.S. gasoline consumption period lasts from this past weekend's Memorial Day holiday until Labor Day in early September, as Americans take to the highways for holidays...

coin dealer...

With the world economy in a serious recession there is only one sure attitude I can still take and that is coin investments… they are a sure thing and to help you in this venture we now have the Monaco rare coin company is part of the Monex Deposit company… right here you know that you are in good hands when it comes to your coin investments.
They really can best help you out because they have so much experience in this area of finance. You can get your own coin dealer to best help you out also so even if you don’t know anything about the coin industry it doesn’t matter.
Now is the time to make those good investments because the times are difficult but there are still somethings out there that can still give you that profit that you want and need when making that investment purchase.

Pack Ice

Those reserves would represent a greater challenge because the water freezes into pack ice that can be 3 meters (10 feet) thick and thaws enough to allow ships through for one month a year at most.

Though global warming may make that oil accessible at some point, the technology actually doesn't exist yet to explore through the ice.
Today, the island has limited autonomy. Greenland residents, mostly Inuit natives, in November will vote on a referendum on greater self-governance, a step that the island is taking as part of 2004 agreement with Denmark. Under the proposal, control of foreign policy would shift to the island.

All this is theoretical at the moment, because no one knows for sure how much oil there is. Nielsen said there's ``a risk'' that the comparisons with the North Sea will prove over-optimistic. And politicians expecting oil to ``bubble up from under the water in two to three years'' are ``very unrealistic,'' said NunaOil's Olsen.

Warming

In Greenland Given the icy conditions, oil production may cost as much as $46 per barrel, according to Oil and Gas Journal While exploration is complicated by icebergs as tall as 15-story buildings, global warming is helping.

Outside the Disko Bay area off the west coast, there were on average 180 ice-free days a year between 2000 and 2005, up from a 25-year average of 150 days, said Leif Toudal Pedersen, a spokesman at Denmark's Meteorological Institute.
If the ice in west Greenland continues to melt as dramatically as it has been doing in the past few years, then the cost of producing a barrel of oil will be closer to $20 than $50.
There may be even more oil off Greenland's northeast coast, where the U.S. Geological Survey last year reported a possible 31.4 billion barrels. That area is more desolate than the west coast; the largest nearby town is Illoqqortoormiut, population 529.

Oil Rises to a Record

Crude oil rose above $129 a barrel in New York for the first time after billionaire hedge-fund manager Boone Pickens said that oil will reach $150 a barrel this year, WorldWatch suggests that Boone Pickens practice playing golf instead of SPECULATING on how crude will end the year, its SPECULATORS like Boone Pickens and Goldman Sachs Group Inc that are undermining world economy with inflamatory comments regarding virtual crude prices.

All across the board oil demand has declined at an average month rate of 2% to 3% worldwide, new energy sources are now being developed , the car industry itself has shifted towards a cleaner energy like hybrid cars, sales alone in the US has increased over 50%, there is now a waiting list of more than one month for the Toyota Pirus, in the US alone...

Brent crude oil for July rose to $127.11 a barrel on London's ICE Futures Europe exchange. The contract touched a record $127.49 today.
Crude oil for June delivery rose to $128.87 a barrel at 9:25 a.m. on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Futures reached $129.31, the highest since trading began in 1983. Prices are 98 percent higher than a year ago.
Oil prices also rose because the dollar weakened against the euro, prompting investors to buy commodities as a hedge against the currency's decline.

Is Boone Pickens a parrot for Goldman Sachs Group line on prices !!!

Goldman Sachs Group Inc Monopoly.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc once more SPECULATING and forcing the crude price to levels they want, this Group is one of the forefront players as to why we have these absurd inflate prices... Prices jumped to the $125 level after another Goldman report less than two weeks ago, today they have done the same...Crude oil rose above $127 a barrel for the first time, leading other commodities higher, after Goldman Sachs Group Inc. raised its forecast on speculation Chinese diesel purchases will strain supplies.

Goldman SPECULATED its price outlook for the second half of this year to $141 a barrel, from $107, citing supply constraints.
Crude oil for June delivery rose to $127.25 a barrel at 9:20 a.m. on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract surged to $127.82 today, the highest since trading began in 1983. Prices have doubled in the past year.

Brent crude oil for July settlement rose to $125.89 a barrel on London's ICE Futures Europe exchange. The contract touched a record $126.34 today.
PetroChina International Co., the trading unit of PetroChina Co., the country's biggest oil producer, has already purchased 400,000 tons, or 2.9 million barrels, of diesel for June. That's in addition to the 200,000 tons that China International United Petroleum & Chemicals Corp., the nation's largest trader, bought for the month.

Saudi Arabia has agreed to increase production in 300.000 a day to help lower prices , White House spokeswoman Dana Perino told reporters traveling on Air Force One.

WorldWatch

Oil prices reach new record in one of Europe’s oldest economies PORTUGAL ...PORTUGAL has one of the worlds most expensive final consumer oil price, regular 95 Octane is now a staggering 1,479 euro per liter.... diesel prices rose to 1,369 euro per liter....
Oil consumption in January had a 2,4% drop, more than 300 filing stations have closed affecting in average 3000 workers!!!!
This 15th oil increase this year in PORTUGAL like most others is PURE SPECULATION, practiced by the government and petrol companies like Galp, BP.REPSOL and others to keep final consumer prices as high as possible...
Galp is the first to apply the new prices followed by the others with the same prices, their monopoly is to keep prices as high as possible, however this is forbiden by the ECC, therefore WorldWatch will make a formal complaint with the ECC alerting to this situation...
Portugal buys crude at discount prices from Venezuela, is involved in partnerships in Angola, Brazil (tupi and sugar field) among other partnerships but these company assets and profits are not passed to the consumer, the government has over 65% tax on every liter consumed the rest the petrol companies keep, BP profits in the first quarter reached 63%...unthinkable!!! Also the crude is paid in dollars and we see the value of the dollar, this is yet another reason not to have such an expensive oil price.... what will happen if the dollar goes to normal values.
This cannot continue, the high price of diesel and regular oil has helped drive up costs for goods and services throughout the economy.... Portugal has now reached the breaking point; its time for the population to react to protest against this abuse of power...

Iran report pushes oil to new record...

Oil prices near $127 a barrel on report about Iranian output; Oil prices shot to a new record near $127 a barrel Tuesday on concerns that Iran may consider cutting crude oil production.

Traders were reacting to news reports that Iran's government is considering cutting crude oil production. In later news reports, Iranian officials denied that production cuts were imminent, but said a reduction has been discussed.

Iran, OPEC's second-largest oil producer, more than doubled the amount stored in tankers idling in the Persian Gulf, as demand for some of its crude fell, this is a direct cause of the crude prices, if the prices don’t come to acceptable levels below $100 then the situation for producers and oil companies and in general will become worse.

Retail prices aren't going to decline as long as any part of the energy complex is heading higher.

In sending crude prices higher Tuesday, investors shrugged off the dollar, which strengthened against the euro Tuesday. A stronger dollar often prompts selling by investors who had bought commodities such as oil as a hedge against inflation. Also, a stronger dollar makes oil more expensive for investors.
Meanwhile, the International Energy Agency, an adviser to mostly western, industrialized nations, said high prices are cutting demand for oil and petroleum products in the U.S. and Europe. The IEA cut its global oil demand growth forecast for this year to 1.2 percent from 1.5 percent. In the U.S., the IEA said demand for oil may contract by as much as 2.1 percent this year, while demand for gasoline will drop by about 1 percent.

Energy investors are also concerned about China, which recently reported a drop in crude imports. Analysts were uncertain whether Monday's 7.9-magnitude earthquake in central China would have a significant impact on demand. The quake killed about 10,000 people and knocked power plants and other factories off-line. Strong demand from China and other fast-growing economies has underpinned oil's rise in recent years.
So all points to less world crude demand but SPECULATION will not allow the prices to reach normal values below $100, a recession in most crude exporters can now be expected, we have Venezuela as a example were food shortages are a daily routine...

'lange & sohne'

Back in 1994 when lange & sohne made its grand debut I was surprised with the breathtaking workmanship showed, there and then I promised myself I would purchase one of those quality watches...

For me the best of the original Lange collection was the legendary Tourbillon Pour le Mérite watch, with its chain transmission mechanism with tourbillon. A coveted collectors piece, and one of the most desirable A. Lange & Söhne watches, the “PLM”, as it is known among the cognoscenti, is the watch you most often see on the wrist of the ever-smiling Walter Lange, creator of the modern A. Lange & Söhne brand.

The German haute horlogerie continues now with the new A. Lange & Söhne Cabaret Tourbillon watch. One of the most beautiful tourbillon timepieces in current production, this new star of the Cabaret collection has a great sense of opulence, strongly tempered by sobriety and elegance. I love the visual balance of the displays; the dominant outsize date at 12, balanced by the lovely tourbillon carriage at 6, which is in turn balanced by the small seconds subdial and the power reserve to its left and right, respectively. The handwound L.961.1 movement is absolutely breathtaking!
While A. Lange & Söhne’s Lange 1 Tourbillon was impressive, and the Tourbograph is a staggering showpiece, I think that this new Cabaret is the most beautiful of the A. Lange tourbillons, standing right up there with the magnificent Pour le Mérite watch of 1994.

Crude Record Near $125 a Barrel

One of the nations that have more fat people in the world are the United States , however there is a way to reduce this...WorldWatch suggests that the US change the summer driving season to a summer cycling season !!! this way they will remain healthy and save on fuel consumption .
The US gasoline price per gallon will no doubt become more expensive as crude oil rose to a record for a fifth day, set for the biggest weekly gain since March last year, on speculation Nigerian export cuts may curb U.S. supplies during the peak summer season.
Attacks by militants on Royal Dutch Shell Plc's Nigerian operations have disrupted output from Africa's biggest oil producer, while U.S. distillate-fuel stockpiles and refinery output have declined from last year.On the other hand we have a group of nations (OPEC) manipulating and speculating to keep crude prices well above the $120 mark, OPEC said yesterday it doesn't need to increase supplies, even as its president warned prices may reach $200 a barrel... So OPEC has publicly announced that they favor SPECULATION as means to obtain ever-growing profits and control world demand, this was not the role of OPEC, they have now emtered a new phase that in time will be their total destruction..
The OPEC President Chakib Khelil doesn’t seem to be very intelligent, anyone can see that demand is not sufficient and still the cartel group keeps denying the obvious.
Crude oil for June delivery climbed to $124.92 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract was at $124.67 at 10:14 a.m. London time. Oil has risen 7.2 percent this week, the biggest weekly gain since March 23, 2007. Prices have doubled in the last year.
Brent crude oil for June settlement jumped to a record $124.25 a barrel on London's ICE Futures Europe exchange. It was at $123.89 at 10:15 a.m. London time.

Crude trader signals

As you know crude prices continue to rocket, every day we have a new record in crude market, sometimes I wonder what will happen to humanity!

Being a crude trader seems to be very stressed and very demanding. Sometimes I see crude traders doing funny signals with their hands, of course it’s very difficult to understand what are saying. But I found a crude trader signal dictionary, through these pictures we can have an idea what they are talking about. Very interesting! Check this out!

The bulls are in control

The bulls are in control of the market and every excuss is used to inflate the crude prices, this time we have once more Iran, Nigeria and Iraq causing prices to spike due to Supply outages or potential threats to supply.
The US keeps bending down to Turkey over the Kurdish rebels and now we have Kurdish rebels warning they could launch suicide attacks against American interests to punish the U.S. for sharing intelligence with Turkey after Turkey bombed rebel bases in Iraq on Friday.How stupid can the US government be...VERY ...
In Nigeria, a Royal Dutch Shell PLC spokesman said attackers hit an oil facility belonging to Shell's joint venture in southern Nigeria and that some oil production has been shut down...what production was shut down???.
In Iran the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said his country will not bend to international pressure and give up its nuclear program..they keep repeating the same conversation why should this affect crude...Iran at the moment has 10 supertankers loaded with crude and no one to sell to...If the prices keep going up they will have less revenue from crude...

The dollar weakened against the euro on Monday, attracting investors to oil and other commodities viewed as hedges against inflation. Also, a falling dollar makes oil less expensive to investors overseas.

Iran Doubles Oil Stored in Tankers

Iran, OPEC's second-largest oil producer, more than doubled the amount stored in tankers idling in the Persian Gulf, sending ship prices higher as demand for some of its crude fell, this is a direct cause of the crude prices, if the prices dont come to acceptable levels below $100 then the situation for producers and oil companies and in general all speculators will become worse..
The 10 tankers hold at least 20 million barrels of oil, equal to about 5 days of the country's output. Rates for tankers have more than tripled since April 8, based on data from the Baltic Exchange and ship-fuel prices.
While oil rose to a record $119.93 a barrel on April 28, Iran has a glut of its sulfur-rich crude as refineries that can process the fuel shut down for maintenance. The discount on Iranian Heavy crude compared with Oman and Dubai petroleum has more than doubled since the start of the year.
There's not much demand for heavier crudes such as those from Iran, It's the peak of the refinery maintenance season in Asia, and Iran also sells oil to Europe and the Mediterranean, where some refineries are having turnarounds, or seasonal shutdowns for repairs.

Get Involved...

SPECULATION and only SPECULATION can cause crude oil to keep reaching news records, if no action is taken humanity itself is in risk...there will be no turning back..today crude rose above $120 a barrel to a record in New York after a report showed that U.S. service industries expanded in April, signalling higher energy use.
Crude oil for June delivery climbed $3.65, or 3.1 percent, to settle at $119.97 a barrel at 2:42 p.m. on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It was the highest closing price since trading began in 1983. Futures surged to an all-time intraday high of $120.36 a barrel today.
The Institute for Supply Management's index of non- manufacturing businesses, which make up almost 90 percent of the economy, grew for the first time since December, the Tempe, Arizona-based group said today. The report came after an oil pumping station was attacked in Nigeria.
The ISM report probably gave us a little bit of a bounce psychologically, maybe the demand for oil is going to rebound.
