>peak of the oil price hike during the bush years
>inflation is out of control
>supply of oil isn't enough to meet massive demand
>prices go up twofold
>in order to cope with massive price rise due to inflation, it now becomes profitable to take oil from places it previously was not possible
>Canada goes from being a passive oil power to very powerful
>Russia also gets a big economic boost
>suddenly inflation goes to 0%
>demand stays the same but production still rising
>gas prices drop like a rock

I hope that was simple enough anon

Fucking idiot.


Fracking has made oil easy to produce.

The best unconventional oil reservoirs have a break-even point of around $50/bbl. Oil is now $30/bbl. Oil is cheap because Saudi Arabia is trying to starve out foreign oil companies by driving down the price to a point where only they can sell oil profitably. Saudi oil is very cheap to produce, with reservoirs that can produce profitably as low as $10/bbl. Saudi Arabia is also starting to produce unconventional natural gas, with the goal of running their entire nation on natural gas so they can sell all their oil.

The Americans started drilling their own and selling at a loss(?) to drive prices down. Seems to be going well, the USD has sky rocketed. Permanently?

Oil is going down cause the demand is dropping for gas. Less people today buy cars and not a lot of people but gas meanwhile the production for gas has skyrocketed. Canada and russia economy are both in the shitter because of it while markets all over the world are in free fall.
Fucking millenial neets are fucking up the world economy and gonna cause ww3

This.

If you followed the news at all, you'd know this. Basically the Saudi's are cucking us right now to regain the upper hand in the oil market.

Fracking is very costly. Right now oil companies arent doing Fracking cause of its cost. it's not worth it for them at the current oil price.

When I got a car 4 1/2 years ago, I was paying up to $65 to fill up a tank. Nowadays I hardly break $30, and I have a car that has much better fuel economy too. It's awesome.

The simple reason is supply was increased and demand slowed.

There is the complex explanation of all the factors involved but I don't really feel like going into it.

If you want more detail then look it up.
