EIA Petroleum Status Report
Petroleum inventories are an important factor in determining the price of petroleum based futures. Low inventories will naturally put a pressure on prices to rise and high inventories will cause prices to stabilize or fall.
Not only are the petroleum based products impacted by this supply/demand price dynamic but any industry that relies on moving goods and services around the country will have to pass on the gas costs to the consumer if the prices rise. This in turn will impact inflation.
