"A barrel produced in France is 10 to 20 times more profitable than a barrel produced in Africa" said Philippe Labat, who founded a small company called Oelweg and runs a well near Oberlauterbach
"Lastly, an appreciation of the dollar in the last two months has seen it reach its highest point in over a year which, in turn, has also contributed to decreasing global demand for oil and added to downward pressure on prices. Oil prices and the US dollar exchange rate have a negative correlation, since the global market for crude oil is generally priced in the dollar. Therefore an appreciation of the dollar is usually accompanied by a decline in global oil prices, due to decreases in demand as it becomes more expensive for non-US consumers, and vice versa. The current dollar strength is a result of the expectations of rising interest rates in the US, as the Federal Reserve (Fed) ceases its asset-purchasing program plus looser monetary policy implemented by both the EU and Japanese central banks, to support their respective economies."
