Thumbs up Oil Crashes Below $1/Barrel

How long until we get trickle down prices of Pennies/Quarts for engine oil?

I'd have to guess it's only at most a few gallons of oil for a huge (HUUUGE) motorcycle tire so the manufacturers will almost have pay us to come and get their tires.


"... just how much oil does it take to create a single car tire?
According to the Rubber Manufacturer’s Association (RMA), it takes about seven gallons of oil to create a standard car tire."

Because i wanted to know..... A barrel is 42 US gallons the measure dates from the 1400's King Richard III made it the standard measure for wine.
Adopted by Pennsylvania for Oil and has remained ever since.
Car Tire needs about 7 gallons but is a very small portion of what crude breaks down into.
Approx 50 % gasoline Approx 18% Diesel and Jet fuel which leaves the rest for all the other things we make from it.
Lube is the smallest at less than 1%
So I doubt it will stay low enough for long enough to affect the selling price of tires or lube oil.

Tyres and Petrol will suffer the same fate

I wonder where all the super tankers will drop anchor to wait for the price to rebound. Don't feel sorry for the speculators who have been robbing us for years.

I haven't looked at the local price for gas here.

If I weren't already starting to think about conserving resources like TP and tinfoil that I won't be able to buy if the fiat dollar tanks then I'd put on a tinfoil hat and mumble about the Chinese and interesting times for self-inflicted conspiracies and the petrodollar.

The whole enchilada is apparently going to permanently ruin some wells and possibly entire fields because you can't just stop pumping (shut in) a producing well, then start it up again.

Why do oilfields take damage when production is paused?

Saw it down to $0.95 up here in Appleton for a good week, but it's bounced back between $0.99-1.05 now.

I had not the slightest bit of idea how much this virus would effect both health and economy when I first started hearing about it; it's astounding.

It's $1.79 for reg. down here, been riding 100 miles a day for the last month. Fresh air helps for good health. Not as many cars on the road for sure.
