Listen: How to tell if sharks are circling crude oil prices

Creepy backgound music, ominous foreshadowing, cocky attitudes: in a movie, these cues will let you know disaster is about to strike, but what clues would have let us know oil prices were about to tank?


Platts senior editors Brian Scheid and Herman Wang wade into the world of climbing crude production, stagnant demand, political situations in countries worldwide and their implications for US oil policy. If we can't tell where prices are going, can we at least tell what to watch for in the future? Phil Flynn, an analyst with Price Futures Group, joins to explain how much as in a B movie, trouble can come from almost anywhere.
