Price changes for Thursday, January 19, 2017

Hi to all,

Here's what I have for this week's price changes. Keep in mind my margin for error of 3/10ths of a cent when you look at that heating/stove number!

*Heating and stove oil shows an added 2/10ths of a cent a litre.
*Diesel fuel shows a drop of a penny a litre, and...
*Gasoline shows a drop of 1.1 cents a litre.

Highlights

Majors moving to land
      In what is probably a sign of the times, large oil companies are beginning to make a move to shore where lower expenses to get into the oil game show more promise.
      A good example of this is a new acquisition of drilling rights by Exxon/Mobil who, with a few billion dollars more, have made a major expansion into the Permian basin in New Mexico.
Estimates are already in showing an estimated 3.4 billion barrels of reserves in the acquired property.

International Energy Agency and a possible flood of oil
       It took them long enough...
      The International Energy Agency is looking at a huge increase in US oil exports to begin just in the next few months that could be the spark to start another oil war for market share with OPEC.
      Because oil prices have hit a level where some profits can be made, the IEA is predicting that US domestic production will be quick in to fill the gap left by OPEC production cuts.

    Look for oil prices to stay "loopy" for the next little while in what could be the lead-up to another price war!

That's it for this week!
