The price of oil drops USD5 - that makes the news.
The roller-coaster of global oil prices does though have palpable effects in the lives of most citizens and certainly in the day to day running of most businesses.
When a business sees its monthly diesel bill leap by 30 percent in the space of a month, then head scratching becomes more intense.
In the mushroom industry suppliers are scratching their heads when customers push for best prices – how can a business discount to a customer when the costs of delivery and day to day running of an operation are piling on the pounds!
It seems like everyone is hurting. But that USD5 drop in the barrel of oil doesn't seem to trickle back to a cheaper litre of petrol or diesel.
