Oil is bought in US dollars.   1 = 1.17$ on 12 sept,  !.13$ on 22 sept, now its 1.09 $    .     Or put another way  ,at todays  $ price for a barrel of crude  , it would have cost about  73 in August and  79 today.

(Maybe the quasi chancellor will one day say " here is the sick squid I owe you" -pay me back  over the next 10 years. )

Ho hum.   
If you win the rat race you are still a rat. These days I would rather eat cheese and wait for them with baited breath.

Ask your pension fund which petrochemical companies are in your portfolio and how much they contribute to the fund value
Might change your attitude then?
