Spot butadiene was assessed at 9 cents/lb CIF USG, down 4.75 cents week on week to the lowest level since December 4, 1986, when it was assessed at 8.25 cents/lb, according to S&P Global Platts data.

The drop marked the first fall after three weeks of stable pricing.

The assessment has shed 37 cents, falling more than 80% since January 31, the year-to-date high of 46 cents/lb.

These prices are necessary to make exports work, one source said.
