Another Thelma-and-Louise Pattern in Crude Oil
A reader with a much better memory than I recently asked about a post from late 2008/early 2009 that talked about the then historic sell-off in crude oil.[Read Full Blog Post]

China's slowing economic growth has been reason given for declining economic growth in the past. Low oil prices should/could/might help their economy as much or more then it is helping ours. (Some are projected a 0.3% increase in our GDP.) China imports something like 90% of the amount the US imported (2013 data). The Rubble is a mess. They have raised interest rates 6.50% overnight. The currency continued to decline. The value against the dollar has dropped in half since June. It would seem to make sense for the Russian farmers to hold grain production (dollar based) to protect their financial position, a move similar to the Argentinean farmers. (Iâ?™m not sure they are able to do this.) These two situations might be long term positive for commodities. Geopolitical events are trumping fundamentals. Freeport, IL

Darrin, Wondering the relationship of USD and Canadian dollar. Back in 90's when the USD was strong and at a premium to Canadian dollar. Their were many hogs and cattle coming down to US. What are your thoughts currently and is the Canadian dollar rising along with USD this time.

OPEC is comfortable because they know that keeping prices low will discourage tar sands and other "tight" oil from North America which need $100/barrel to make it profitable. At these prices Canadian and North Dakota oil will dry up or be produced at a loss.

Interesting comments Jay.

I had a question come in via email: What was the price of gas at the pump when crude oil was this low 4 years ago? I looked up a couple of different prices for the answer. First, the national spot RBOB gasoline price ranged between $2.18 and $2.04 in September 2010 before closing the month near $2.11. Wednesday's close saw the same national spot RBOB gasoline priced at $2.19. As for the price at the pump, a data set shows the national average cash price in the low $2.70s, while Wednesday's national average cash price for regular gas was roughly $2.86.

There are many different reasons for gasoline prices varying from crude. One is that refineries have to shut down for repairs or even sometimes have accidents that keep them shutdown for a time. Of course when they shutdown there is an abundance of crude.

If the U.S. is still importing 3M bpd I'm sure we do not have an abundance of oil? Do we? What happens to ethanol at $64 oil?
