Oil prices are down here too. The Price for gasoline is now down to $1.71 for regular here is Augusta, Georgia. Most of us here consider that a plus, however, if you work for a big oil compamy, you may see it differently.
The job situations in both Alberta and Newfoundland, which both rely heavily on the oil industry, are, at best, dismal and the ripple effect is being seen almost as much on the national side with our dollar plunging to the lowest it's been against the American dollar since the early 2000s. Now that affect is a bonus for our manufacturing industries.
