    Heard of Fracking but need clarity, these shale producers have supplied oil from fracking to USA STATION causeing barrels (oil )to drop world wide to compete for the market. Am I off track or near the track. Explain than the what is causing the drop in oil prices.

  • It’s pretty simple: More supply than demand. Oil is a commodity market. With the strong and growing volume of oil produced in the U.S., OPEC no longer calls the shots. Used to be OPEC could limit production and cause the price to spike. No more. The U.S. now produces as much oil as Saudi Arabia. So, the simple fact is, we have more oil than we have demand for it, and that’s causing the price to plummet. In time the market will correct and prices will rise again–as they always do. But expect low oil prices to be the norm for months–perhaps several years.
