Fran Brunelle, President of Accelerated Manufacturing Brokers, discussed the impacts of oil price fluctuations on manufacturing both short-term and long-term. Oil price per barrel plummeted by 67% in Q1 2020. In recent weeks, the price continued to decline until hitting negative territory for the first time in history when it went from $18 to $-38 per barrel in a few short hours. Falling prices, while initially the result of a pricing war between Saudi Arabia and Russia, have been dramatically affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic and the lack of demand it has caused.
According to Brunelle, “Efforts to diversify our economy has resulted in large investments in manufacturing facilities; while the process of navigating COVID-19 is painful both personally and professionally, the outlook of low oil prices will allow some manufacturers to add tens of thousands of jobs when plants reopen. The long-term nature of these projects, such as world-scale plastics manufacturing, steel production, and other related industries, means that we are somewhat insulated from short-term fluctuations in market forces. This will help our economy to remain as stable as possible during this global event.”
