A Summer Review
Retail Gasoline Prices Swayed by Refinery Work and Weak Demand

Regular grade gasoline prices in the United States declined quickly in June before rebounding moderately in July and August to a level on Labor Day that was 12cts gallon below the Memorial Day price point, according to the Energy Information’s summer gasoline price review posted online early last week.

EIA said this price pattern differed from that of recent years when gasoline prices were stable for the first half of the summer before declining late in the summer, with the Labor Day average 17cts gallon below that seen on Memorial Day.

Enbridge to Expand One Crude Pipeline, Reverse Another with Two Projects

Enbridge Inc. and Enbridge Energy Partners, L.P. announced in an Oct. 3 news release two pipeline projects that will provide increased access to refineries in the U.S. upper Midwest and in Ontario, Canada, for light crude oil produced in western Canada and the United States.

The first project involves the expansion of Enbridge Energy Partners’ Line 5 light crude line between Superior, Wisconsin and Sarnia, Ontario, by 50,000 bpd. The cost of the project is approximately $100 million.

A news release announcing the study said that governments and taxpayers spent roughly $500 billion in 2010 supporting the production and consumption of fossil fuels.
