Are federal dollars for your state's highways going to other states?

Image From . Effective project management and timely application for federal highway funding can mean a difference of millions of dollars for your state's roadways. Caltrans announced earlier this month that the federal government has rewarded California with a record $293 million in transportation funding after the state met all its 2015-2016 fiscal year deadlines for federally-funded projects. This surpasses California’s previous record (set in 2006) by almost $90 million.

“Caltrans has been rewarded—yet again—for its on-time and responsible use of federal funding, launching new construction projects prior to federal deadlines,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty. “These additional funds will help Caltrans and local transportation agencies to continue to invest in transportation across the state.”

EIA shows another decline in crude oil inventories, gasoline sees small build

The Energy Information Administration released its weekly report today on the status of petroleum inventories in the United States.Here are some highlights:CRUDE INVENTORIES:Crude oil inventories decreased by 0.6 million barrels (MMbbl) to a total of 510.8 MMbbl. At 510.8 MMbbl, inventories are 54.9 MMbbl above last year (12.0%) and are well above the upper limit of the average range for this time of year. Inventories at major delivery point Cushing, OK fell 1.2 MMbbl to a total of 62.2 million barrels.GASOLINE INVENTORIES:Gasoline inventories increased by 0.6 million barrels to a total of 228.4 MMbbl. At 228.4 MMbbl, inventories are up 11.0 MMbbl, 5.0% higher than a year ago and are well above the upper limit of the average range for this time of year. Here's how individual regions and their gasoline inventory fared last week: East Coast (-0.9 MMbbl); Midwest (-0.6 MMbbl); Gulf Coast (+2.3 MMbbl); Rockies (+0.0 MMbbl); and West Coast (-0.3 MMbbl). It is important to note which regions saw increases/decreases as this information likely drives prices up (in the case of falling inventories), or down (in the case of rising inventories).DISTILLATE (diesel, heating oil) INVENTORIES:Distillate inventories increased by 4.6 MMbbl to a total of 162.8 MMbbl. At 162.8 MMbbl, inventories are up 8.8 MMbbl, or 5.7% vs. a year ago....

Oil intrigue continues

Photo courtesy of Brooks O. Hubbard Over the last few weeks oil has been steadily trading higher, defying those vast majority of analysts experts who do not beleive that crude markets are balanced. Yesterday's historical draw in US oil inventories of some 14.5 million barreals only furthered the interest of those who beleive better times lie ahead for the commodity and are betting and investing accordingly....

Highest taxes in the U.S. pay for PennDOT highway improvements

Image From . / Doug KerrPennsylvania motorists --and just about everyone who needs to travel through southern PA will soon see improvements begin on I-95. PennDOT's new transportation plan anticipates $61.9 billion being available over the next 12 years for improvements to roads, bridges, transit systems, airports and railroads. And $3.3 billion is allocated for I-95. "...We continue to stretch taxpayers’ dollars to reach as many transportation needs as possible,” said PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards.  “This update reflects the progress we are making, chipping away at our large backlog of pavement and bridge needs while adding some capacity expansion to address long-standing desires for better mobility." Of course, PA can chip away faster than other states. Its gasoline tax is now 69.8 cents per gal., the highest in the U.S. ...

Post-Summer Driving Season Gasoline Swoon Coming

As the summer driving season has closed, gasoline prices have slowly faded, falling 2.7 cents per gallon in the last week, according to price-tracker GasBuddy.com. Gasoline prices faded in the days ahead of Labor Day, falling nearly 3 cents per gallon since August 31, something that has now happened eight of the last ten years ahead of Labor Day- a stat that flies in the face of the myth that gasoline prices rise merely for the holiday. The only years in the last ten that saw prices rising going into Labor Day were 2011 (4.4 cent rise between Aug. 31 and Labor Day) and 2010 (0.9 cent rise).With autumn on the horizon, it's good news for motorists: demand decreases for gasoline will accelerate, putting downward pressure on retail gasoline prices, and in less than two weeks, much of the United States will begin switching back to cheaper winter blends of gasoline as EPA's requirements of summer gasoline fade on September 15. ...

The end of summer with Labor Day

Its a time for reflecting on the summer past and the working year ahead.  No doubt much attention will be paid to things getting back to the normal pace of activity. But it is perhaps the future of fuel prices that will come into sharp focus come Tuesday.Lower than expected demand and decent output by refineries through the spring and summer means prices are likely to fall for the near future. Add to this the pending change in gasoline specs from summer to winter blends and the scenario for even cheaper gas looks promising. Not that this will prevent daily musings over crude especially as a meeting of OPEC members at the end of the month is always guarantee to stimulate a lot of speculation over a much sought after cap in oil production that is enforceable.Besides weather related disruptions and unforeseen interruptions in gasoline production, some factors that could lend support to prices later in the Fall are potential issues over the requirement that all refineries provide an average lower sulphur content in their fuel, going from 15 ppm (parts per million) to 10 ppm. It may not sound like much, but to achieve this some refineries may find it a challenge to acquire alternate supplies of alkylates to meet the new standard that affects both U.S. and Canadian refiners alike.Refinery turnarounds and lower output might also leave speculators with the belief that gas is scarce. The misread usually gets a price correction but no until motorists wind up paying for these erroneous bets.But like this Labor Day Weekend in which U.S. Drivers are paying the lowest prices going back to 2004, the Fall doesn't look like its about to break that trend. Have a safe and memorable weekend from all of us here !...
