    the years but now trade at more or less the same price They ended last week at 29 14 and 29 39 respectively Many analysts expect the oil price to remain around current levels for some time with over supply likely to remain in the short term These are not abnormal levels oil traded around 15 to 25 for most of the Eighties and Nineties and only rose to its peak at 140 during the financial crisis in 2008 That said low prices are hurting the oil majors like BP and Shell who are currently shelving major projects and reducing costs This will gradually reduce global oil supply and create the conditions for price rises The oil price could also be driven up quickly by global shocks such as we saw with the wars in Iraq or Hurricane Katrina in 2005 On balance a world with lower oil prices is a net benefit Leading markets such as the US and Europe should benefit from a combination of greater personal consumption and from lower energy costs in the long run reversing the downward trends in global stock markets From the web Sponsored Videos Your Comments COMMENT RULES Comments that are judged to be defamatory abusive or in bad taste are not acceptable and contributors who consistently fall below certain criteria will be permanently blacklisted The moderator will not enter into debate with individual contributors and the moderator s decision is final It is Belfast Telegraph policy to close comments on court cases tribunals and active legal investigations We may also close comments on articles which are being targeted for abuse Problems with commenting customercare belfasttelegraph co uk Powered by Livefyre Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Livefyre Read More Making it simpler to cope with daily stress Ever just hit an emotional or mental wall when you are just weary of dealing with people Staying in a reformed EU still makes sense Following last week s draft deal on plans to reform the EU the Prime Minister has called for businesses to speak up ahead of the EU referendum which is looking more likely to be in the summer Why risks posed by Brexit don t add up for province By John Simpson The Prime Minister is right when he emphasises that a Brexit would be an irreversible single decision no amendment no second chance no going back First Minister Arlene Foster emphasises the UK decision Company Report Ulster Orchestra By John Simpson The annual report from the chairman of the Ulster Orchestra Society outlines the serious financial pressures faced by the orchestra but ends with a degree of reassurance Sir George Bain is more than a little optimistic That optimism is however tempered by evidence of the reduction in funding from two sources of financial assistance the Arts Council and the BBC Most Read Most Shared Most Commented Why Minister must consider a Translink price increase John Simpson Making it simpler to cope with daily stress Opinion
