Crude Awakening

News

For the first time since 2009, consumers are finally saying "it's about time", as the price of crude oil is around $50 a barrel, which appears just fine. However, the global economy could be suffering down the line.

At one moment, the price fell more than a dollar to $49.92 a barrel in early trading on Wednesday before edging back above $50.

Meanwhile, as many consumers and businesses welcome a drop in the cost of fuel, oil producing countries including Russia and Venezuela have been hit as the price of their main export falls.

CITY ISLAND IMAGES CONTINUES TO GROW

Issue

A couple of years ago, it seemed like an excellent opportunity that was too good to pass up. It was the perfect chance for a new online news and information start-up to overshadow an old fashioned and sleepy service that had proven popular across City Island in previous years, but subscriptions had apparently become stagnant and therefore virtually abandoned by publishing old news, only ten times a year and not offering updates online.
