Higher supply and lower demand have driven down the price of oil recently. With drivers cutting back in the typically positive summer driving season, oil and gas companies now have large inventories on hand. The growing popularity of alternatively powered vehicles and bio-blended fuels is also a detriment to the oil and gas industry.

The recent slowdown of US economic growth is also of concern to the industry, as demand may falter alongside rising unemployment. While the economic data was not positive, the Dollar managed to gain against the Euro, which bodes well for European oil and gas producers, as oil prices are quoted in US dollars.

While the immediate future may not seem bright for the oil and gas industry, companies have posted substantial quarterly gains over the same period last year. The gains come as fuel prices, as well as the economy, have pulled themselves up from 2009 levels. 

Back in July, ConocoPhillips reported a jump in earnings to $4.16 billion boosted by refining margins and higher oil prices. On the other hand, Total SA posted a 43% surge in profit. www.rothmanresearch.com provides technical analysis and free downloadable research reports on ConocoPhillips and Total SA by signing up now at
