Would be nice to see a drop in the prices at the pumps but then again, all the prices around me have just gone up $.10 per gal.

The decline in gasoline inventories is a drop in a bucket but hey, let's not miss a chance to tell the consumer to bend over again.

Imported crude took a continuous dive.

Refineries produced more.

Demand is going down.

Prices are stable to declining (barely).

Do these crude and gasoline inventories going down mean that the pump price will go up or down?

They increased production a few weeks ago, to shut down parts for maintenance. Now they are doing it. If prices go up or down, it's for some other speculated reason.
