I was reminded of the above report in the FT, just over two weeks ago, warning us several times that the fall in oil prices was a major factor in weakening the economic case for independence.
Today, in finance research website, Daily FX, I read:
Oil Prices continue to Surge after EIA report confirms shrinking supply.
CNBC two days ago also reported:
High expectations for oil demand might justify the recent run-up in prices. West Texas Intermediate crude, for example, is trading at one-month highs and has risen by as much as 30% this year. WTI traded above $63 a barrel on Friday.
Having just posted my vote SNP 1, Green 2, I’m a bit conflicted reporting this but in the push for independence I will use all and any evidence that demonstrates its viability.
