How Low Gas Prices will Impact the Office Market (SLIDESHARE)

By: Dan Adamski, Managing Director, JLL

For the first time in years, filling up isn’t getting us down.

Diesel prices sitting below $3 are welcomed by consumers, especially as the holidays arrive. In June of this year, gas prices reached $3.68. Now, they’re as low as $2.73, according to AAA. The drop in gas costs hit quickly, and its impact on multiple industries varies.

The Situation: Oil Prices Fall Worldwide

For the first time in five years, the price of one barrel has dipped below $70, which is down from more than $100 per barrel in the last five months. Causes for the drop in costs include:

  • Excess supply and little slow down in production
  • Drop in overall demand, due to slower economic growth in China and lower levels of oil consumption in Europe
  • Strict fuel standards (good news for the environment) and a sharper focus on energy efficient practices
