Since the beginning of 2011, the spot price of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil has trailed the spot price of other crude oils. Because few U.S. refiners have easy access to WTI crude oil, U.S. refined petroleum products, such as gasoline and heating oil, have more closely tracked the prices of Brent and Louisiana Light Sweet (LLS).

High heating oil prices discourage heating oil supply contracts for the upcoming winter (10/25/2011)
Fewer Northeast homeowners are choosing to lock in their heating oil prices this winter compared to previous years. After petroleum prices collapsed during the second half of 2008, so did the percentage of homeowners with supply contracts the following two winters, with estimated participation sinking to about 25% in both 2009 and 2010. For this winter the number is expected to be even lower.

Libya resumes natural gas exports to Italy (10/20/2011)
On October 13, 2011, Libya resumed natural gas exports to Italy via the Greenstream Pipeline. Unrest in Libya since February curtailed both oil and natural gas exports in general.

U.S. Natural Gas Imports & Exports: 2010 (10/20/2011)
Full natural gas import and export data for 2010 is now available. During 2010, United States natural gas net imports fell 3 percent to 2.6 trillion cubic feet. Increased domestic sources of natural gas helped maintain competitive prices and discouraged imports while encouraging exports. Natural gas imports declined modestly in 2010 by 11 billion cubic feet. Strong natural export growth drove net imports lower in 2010.
