The swift and expensive drop in oil prices has been the issue of Wall Street for some time and 30 million American travellers will be glad as they get a busy Thanksgiving holiday. But the measurable refusal cuts both ways, along with a number of energy firms big and small observing their stock rates fall even US President Donald Trump inspirits the lowest oil prices in more than a year.

The Chief investment officer of Heartland Financial, Nancy Tengler said, “He’s a piece of work. It’s all supply, that is the issue. The U.S. is producing 11.5 million barrels a day. We are the largest producer in the world. There’s just more supply than demand currently. If Saudi Arabia keeps pumping and exemptions to Iran stay in place, prices are going to stay low.”

A number of companies have been beaten by the price reduction. Medium and small independent oil companies that depend on liquid injecting at high pressure are seen to erode their profit margins which are hitting stock prices.
