Low prices here to stay? The game changer has been a new source of oil and gas from America’s fracking, putting it back into the top league of energy producers. This has added to the diversity of supply, denying the national oil cartels their stranglehold over supply and prices.
Or will fuel price increase when the global slowdown in growth recedes? Again, green energy is poised to top up supply when the new generation of alternative energy supply overcomes the remaining technological problems eg energy storage.
