It’s all about the price of oil. In our last September 2014 tank barge market report we were just beginning to see the drop begin in earnest. At that time oil prices were running about US $80/BBL for West Texas Intermediate Crude. Since then some pain and suffering has really taken hold on the market. At the end of February (after a brief rally) WTI crude prices were hovering around US $50/BBL.
