There may be a breathing space for the environment, as the slow down seems to be global.

its funny
earlier this year the Saudi Oil Minister said " we are prepared to live with oil being 40 dollars a barrel
Fast Forward 8 months later and its close to 40.00 as he "predicted.
They could be manipulating the market to put the squeeze on ISIS and Iran.

dont worry, they will jack up the price in the coming years.

Well that's a relief - cheap oil isn't good for your car and makes lousy plastics.

Cattle food and motor fuel should never mix. Shitty fuel; hungry cows.

The speculators are long gone plus more supply than demand.

US is booming along fairly well but other countries are really slowing down.

China is doing anything to raise cash and that hurts everyone.

Not looking for good news from that behemoth for a good while.

foot loose
my .02
its all a part of the plan to destroy our older cars and keep the consumption going (my personal theory)
call it a covert version of Cash for Clunkers
force people into more debt by destroying functioning older cars.
People are keeping their cars longer so that has negative effects on the car / finance industry

in time they will make it 15%, 20% and 25% ethanol in order to kill over older cars.

again- my .02
