Some producers 'brutalized' in energy stock sell-off: Canadian crude prices cause concern

The Canadians are getting less for their oil right now because of transportation issues. The pipeline to the US would have helped but now they need to look at options to export to other partners others than the US. It takes a lot of investment to reap the rewards...

If the deeply discounted crude prices are up there they are not coming to the states and if they are then the speculators and big oil got us again.

It seems this oversupply problem is only affecting the price of Canadian crude. Here in the US we are still paying too much.

Perhaps it is looming prosecution and a lack of consumer confidence in Big Oil?

Canadian oil sand crude cannot be easily transported , thus lower prices. The crude is transported by railroad car tankers.
