Is OPEC trying to influence our presidential election in Obama’s favor by manipulating the price of crude oil down, after doubling the price over past 4 yr, to make him look good to the people?
Smart people know prices are set, fixed, by OPEC not the marketplace.
Watch oil prices after the election. If prices go back up you have the answer. But of course there will always be a reason, excuse.

There is a reason election time is called the SILLY SEASON.
Beware of all promises, manipulated data, “good news”, freebees, give a ways, from now till election day. Politicians will tell you anything you want to hear to get your vote, including lie.
