Brent crude posted its biggest one-day drop this year on Tuesday as part of a sell-off in commodities and equities. On Wednesday, European shares rallied, other commodities such as copper steadied and the dollar fell.

there is a huge disconnect between the cost of a barrel of oil and the high prices we end up paying at the pump. Yesterday's news said oil was heading down, today's news says it's heading up, really don't know, but either way US gas prices are steadily rising

No need for those trying to get oil higher, it's going to happen soon enough. It will be back up to it's highs of this year already and will go higher still.
