Oil Closes Just Shy Of $50 -- October 3, 2016

Link here. Despite OPEC "cut" -- US oil may not top $50 ceiling until next year -- Investor's Business Daily.

Today: WTI closed just below $50 at $49.25. 

Several comments:
  • first, there is no "cut"; there's hardly even an agreement
  • second, not much difference between $50.01 and $49.25
  • third, why is "everyone" so concerned about oil going higher? Californians certainly don't want to pay more for gasoline
  • fourth, didn't Goldman Sachs (and many others) say we were headed back to $20 oil based on supply and demand?
