Give me a break. The oil market is absolutely huge. EVs aren’t even a rounding error right now, and I’m quite sure the big oil market players don’t give two seconds thought to it. Oil prices are coming down due to Libya coming on line, US production increasing, and world wide demand slackening (Europe is heading into a recession, while US gasoline consumption is decreasing due to fuel efficiency standards). And you’ve got it backwards as far as Saudi Arabia is concerned. The last time oil prices dropped a lot, Saudi Arabia cut back production in what ended up being a futile attempt to keep prices high. This time around, they have said they want to keep their market share, so they are not reducing production. But then, neither is anyone else. Its just pure supply and demand…
Amazing Oil Price Drop! – what does it mean for solar cells tesla Putin Russia America
In one year from 100 USD per Barrel to below 50USD per Barrel.
Arabia wants to stop US shale gas production – USA wants to stop Putin – all together want to stop/slow down the development of electronic cars like TESLA or Nissan Leaf and the advancements in solar power and battery technology. (there are some interesting patents coming up… oxygen battery and perowskit-solar-cells)
I know the economy is not „growing“.
But in Germany (at least) people drive further to work than ever before. (200km per day sometimes)
which consumes a lot of fuel – doesn’t it?
People use the airplane more often than ever (cheaper than bus sometimes).
