Every month, Breakthrough®Fuel’s Knowledge Team produces a publication offering insights into the energy market and how recent developments relate to supply chain and transportation concerns. Our in-house experts keep a close eye on the North American and global markets so that our clients stay informed.
Here’s a look at what we’re working on for the May 2017 Breakthrough®Advisor …
2017 Energy Prices – Smooth Sailing or Roller Coaster Ride?
In 2015, we saw diesel prices trend downward only to reverse course in 2016. While there was a price drop in early March, the first quarter of 2017 was relatively stable. Increased U.S. crude oil production continued to balance global cuts.
Is diesel price consistency a trend that continued into April?
We’ll provide an in-depth report examining North American fuel markets for truck and rail diesel in the upcoming Breakthrough®Advisor.
Summer Driving Season and the OPEC Meeting
Heading into May, Americans are making summer travel plans. That means an increased demand for fuel as vacationers hit the road. In major economies around the world, summer also brings an increased demand of refined petroleum products. We’ll explain how a surge in gasoline and diesel production, both in the US and around the world, could impact the price at the pump.
Also in the near future is a much-anticipated OPEC meeting. Producers are gathering in May to discuss the possibility of extending production cuts. How much could this decision impact supply and demand fundamentals? The Breakthrough®Advisor team gives its thoughts in May’s Market Outlook & Forecast.
Global Tensions Rising
What will happen in North Korea? It’s a question on many people’s minds. Since the situation is connected to relations between the U.S. and China, it could have ramifications influencing energy policy.
As we watch things unfold, the Breakthrough®Advisor team will explain how geopolitical tensions such as this might impact transportation costs.
