Fuel Price Brief

 

For the first time since August 9, crude oil settled below $80 a barrel as fuel demand lags and economic concerns persist. Oil production in Libya has resumed an output quota of almost 600 million barrels a day. Libyan quotas are expected to reach one million barrels a day in the next six months. All of which drove down oil and gas prices throughout the past month. Crude oil settled Friday at $79.85 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange—$8.11 less than the week prior.

Drivers say the problem along Atlantic Boulevard is the westbound turn lane onto 9A.  When the Atlantic turn arrow turns green, other cars are still coming off 9A, running that red light, causing a major backup on Atlantic.

School bus driver Sylvia Wyche said, "When the light does change, we don't have enough time to get across."
