OIL FUTURES: Crude Falls to Lowest Level Since July

Dow Jones Newswires --
Crude futures on the New York Mercantile Exchange fell by 2.2% Tuesday, closing at the lowest level since mid-July against a backdrop of weak earnings results and growing concerns about the economy.

Nymex front-month futures for December delivery settled at $86.67 per barrel, down $1.98, the lowest settling price since July 12. Brent oil futures were $1.17 lower to $108.27.

Oil prices have been mostly on a downward trend since mid-September, fueled by the perception of plentiful oil supplies and continued concerns about the health of the global economy. But Tuesday's trading shifted oil into a lower range than it has experienced in recent months, generating talk that the commodity could have further to fall.

And yet the retail price of gas barely declines. The difference? Romney's Republican speculator buddies perhaps?

Prices are coming down because winter blend is , and with with gas, my mileage is down also, approx 16%, some deal I think it averages out to the same cost per mile. Higher summer blend, good mileage lower winter blend less mileage. The companies don't lose, its economics, you don't sell if you can profit.

Market prices fall but pump prices stay high.

Someone is getting rich with this legal robbery at the pump.

We are getting poorer.

I think 1.98 would be a good price instead of that much dropping off the price of a barrel.

A good deal if cars ran off pure unrefined crude.

All that really matters is the cost of things coming out of the end of the nozzle for us.

If things heat up in the Middle East, expect prices to increase. So enjoy the lower prices while you can.

Southrob - "1.84 when obama took office"

I hope your memory is working long enough to remember that America had an economic collapse in 2008. Remember employment plummeted? Remember that the real estate market dropped like a rock? Remember "W" bailing out big banks to the tune of $150 BILLION?

Enough of the crap about cheap gas during Bush's term. It was over $4 a gallon at one point. Who cares if it was $2 a gallon for a very brief time? Nobody had a job to buy gas then.

“Get rid of Obama and maybe this trend will continue.”

That’s totally irrelevant.

I wonder what the break price is for fracking oil? I heard 5 years ago it was $60 for oil sands.
