Benefit at the Pump, and in the Market, from Low Oil Prices

Dow Jones Industrial Average

Crashing oil prices are certainly one of the biggest stories of the past six months.

Indeed, as the price of crude continues to drop, currently hovering just under a once-unthinkable $50 per barrel price, the issue is sure to be in the news well into the foreseeable future.

But the issue goes beyond simply lower prices, and it spawns some even bigger questions: 

Are supply and demand really the drivers at work? Is it political warfare above all? How will global markets react when prices rebound?
