So when do you suppose dino diesel is gonna start dropping? Most of Europe has been a no fly zone for almost a week, literally millions of gallons of kerosene not being used every day, supply should be backing up all down the chain.
I don't know beans about the aviation fuel supply chain but I imagine when they do start flying again there are going to be a lot of heavy birds lifting off right at max takeoff weight.... or over!
I also imagine they are going to be putting on every extra flight they can.
What sort of effect this will have in leveling out the stockpile, I don't know.
Perhaps it will only be Europe that has any significant over supply of fuel as most other places are still running all their other services so it's not like they have stopped using fuel all together.
Cheaper Fuel? HA, Ha, ha.
the excuse will be that the price went up since they had to cut production due to the planes not flying and alot of gasoline is imported in from Europe that had to be offset, even if it's shipped in and not flown in. Perhaps it will be that more Europeans had to drive to their destination instead of fly and that consumed alot more diesel than expected.
Hard to tell but I bet prices will go up not down.
Ahem,the time honoured habit of raising fuel prices at every opportunity and for any reason either real or immagined is unlikely to be changed by something as insignificant as lower use. (IMO)

Cmon guy we need to get back to some good old hatin on big oil, don't let me down here.
Maybe it will be that the prices have risen due to Greenlands oil production being shut down. Since they're number 188 on the list at 0 bbl/day according to this site http://www.indexmundi.com/g/r.aspx?c=gl&v=88.
There are some sites discussing oil exploration in the arctic. Maybe future reserves are being held up due to the delay in exploration that need to be accounted for?
Oil isn't flowing as fast from scandanavian countries throught the Atlantic?
You know it will be something. There having a board meeting about the same thing we are right now.
Never. If avtur storage gets full, then the refineries will simply switch to producing more vehicle diesel, or kerosene.
The oil industry is a huge economic engine in America. It pays billions in taxes, and employs millions of Americans and feeds their families, and pays their mortgages and rent. The oil industry is largely responsible for the cushy lifestyle you enjoy. Don't bite the hand that feeds you.
Just the volume of World air traffic is astounding. From this simple video illustration it is quite clear to see the bulk of traffic in the Iceland volcano zone.

One good side effect is the sky is really clear and quiet with no aircraft-seems the ash cloud is due on your eastern seaboard today
It seems that the last time this volcano let loose was in 1823. That time it belched smoke and ash for almost a year

On the news last night some expert quoted that it is throwing out 500 tons per second-that is some rate!Gonna be a big hole somewhere.
All that nice sodium dioxide will counter-act Global Warming as well.
"The strongest volcanic eruption in the past 1,000 years is believed to have been Mt. Tamborain Indonesia in April of 1815.
According to the Christian Science Monitor: 'The eruption of Mt. Tambora cast a veil of ash around the world, lowering global temperatures by more than 5 degrees Fahrenheit.'
The result was the 'year without a summer' in 1816. A couple of decent volcanoes per decade and our global warming problem would appear to be solved. Get me Al Gore on the phone."

I knew it started with an "S".
The concept of geoengineering scares the crap out of me. With the way people spit and spout that climate change is done science, when really the arguments for are falling apart and a against growing, at the very lease there is NO consensus on it, then you want to DO something on a massive scale about it?
And IF there is climate change and IF the science is actually good then it works.
But if there wasn't really global warming in the first place, HELLO, you've just ushered in the next ice age.
And if the geoengineering science isn't all that good, then I have no friggin' idea what could happen...and ice age might just be best case...massive plankton bloom that sucks oxygen out of the atmosphere might be worst case (as opposed to the expected photo-plankton bloom that would suck CO2 out of the atmosphere).
For those who forgot since we discussed this a month or so ago.
The earth's average temperature has been gradually warming for the past 10,000 [ten thousand] years. There have been warming and cooling periods above and below that gradually rising temperature. Recent warming periods gave rise to the Egyptian, Minoan, Roman, and in the most recent past [1000 years ago] for European civilizations. It's been warmer than now before, and the polar bears have survived just fine with an ice free summer Arctic ocean.
Human civilizations and empires have risen and expanded during the warming periods and shrunk and often fallen during the cooling periods.
The most important point is that there is no conclusive evidence that human activities are making any significant increase in the temperature. If anything our GHG emissions are slightly delaying the next cooling period. That's fine by me. Warmer winters and earlier spring is way better than another 'ice age'. If you happen to live where more frequent weather extremes like hurricanes and tornadoes are happening then just be glad it's not earthquakes and volcanoes.
Pollution makes people sick and shortens our healthy lifespan. It's almost all caused by human activity.
Do something about that, and ignore the rest, they're just distractions to make you forget about pollution.
Works pretty good doesn't it?
It ought to, companies that pollute and make machines that pollute pay good money to keep you distracted from the pollution that makes their profits.
