Oil and Gasoline Prices Continue Steep Decline

As shown in below, oil prices were relatively stable for a relatively long period beginning in 2011 in a range centered around $100/barrel, while gasoline prices tended to fluctuate in a range around $3.50/gallon. This equilibrium began to fall apart at roughly the mid-point of 2014, when oil prices, both Brent and West Texas Intermediate (WIT) began falling sharply, along with gas prices. The resulting decline in both markets has been quite steep and continuous since that time, with gasoline prices falling below $2.00/gallon in many parts of the country.
