The summer holiday clothes, the sun cream and photos, are now all destined for the physical and electronic storages, the kids are back, or going back, to school (hooray!), the northern hemisphere nights are drawing in, Love Island is but a dream and those winter TV series are all about to re-start! The structure of our lives is therefore about to change, so why not the structure of the LPG market?
In yesterday’s SIMON SAYS we were trying to work out why propane in Enterprise’s Non-TET system was taking such a bashing. It’s amazing that the same product, in pretty much the same place, is being bought and sold at such a discount, one that’s nearly been as high as 20%!
The British Prime Minister Harold Wilson, in the early 1960s, was attributed with the phrase, “a week is a long time in politics”, I think the catchphrase could well be applied to the week we’ve just seen in the LPG world! It’s not that it’s been a dramatic turnaround, it’s more that the market is less predictable than we thought or expected.
I’m just flying over Newfoundland, Canada on my way back from what’s becoming my second home now - Houston, Texas. I don’t know if you do it when you’re flying, but I tend to think-back on my life, well that is, ever since I stopped flying with a hangover after a big night out doing the compulsory “smooching” with clients. I certainly don’t miss those days, or do I?
