    Akwa Ibom state government has directed the slashing of salaries of  all political office holders  by 20%. This will be until the return of crude oil price to normalcy. Sad, but a good move by Governor Udom Emmanuel. Will it be a tall order to ask the State HOA to do same?

  • From Rudy28402798:

    EIA puking oil inventories last two weeks, large negative adj’s. Past three week’s neg adj’s lowered US crude oil inventories ~15mm bbls or nearly 5mm bbls/wk. EIA way behind the curve on US oil production. How much of that 100mm bbl inventory build was fairy dust?
