The Americas in the Face of Low Oil Prices (brown bag luncheon)

The unprecedented rise in US oil and gas production has led to dramatic change in global energy markets. The steady increase in US supply, demand slowdown in emerging markets, and other drivers fueled the fierce competi-tion for market share and the ensuing drop in oil prices from a high of $100+ dollars a barrel last July to around $50 today. While low prices benefit con-sumers, producers face a tough road ahead.
