The first two weeks of 2016 have not been kind to the stock market. New 12 New Jersey's Karen Lee look at what effects this will have in New Jersey.
"Last June, price of one barrel of crude oil was a hundred dollars or more and now it's $44," says Dr. Siamack Shojai at William Paterson University. "For every dollar cut in crude prices, consumers pay 3 cents less at the gas pump." Dr. Shojai expects the price to go down even further. He says that the price of crude oil could go down to $30 a barrel, which would bring gas down another 30 cents.
The dean of William Paterson University's College of Business Siamack Shojai says that many factors play a part in determining the price of oil. Depending on supply and demand and what is occurring at the stock market can effect oil prices.
