Benchmark oil for October delivery was down 5 cents in midday Bangkok time to $95.42 per barrel in electronic trading

Weather forcasters have to build drama into these things and we have to pay for their lack of knowledge!

This story is from Bangkok. I guess they want to rip you off too. Speculators worldwide want your money. And will do anything to get it.

Don't expect fuel prices to drop. If not Isaac, then they will make up another reason to keep increasing prices.
