    Gasoline demand fell 5.9% from year ago, and gas prices were 1.3% lower this year Vs last.

     

    Epic fail of all this stimulus.. some $5 trillion under Obama

     

    so great, now we have far more debt and a far smaller real physical economy.

    Funny how Bbro isn't first in line to post when data is weak. Markets didn't drop much on the miss, apparently QE3 rumors will be back today.

    This report, if true, is opposite of the manufactoring report that was released earlier this week, but in line with the Chicago PMI report.
