Many are quick to point out that oil still has a good $30 to go before passing the all time highs from 2008. True… If one lives in the US. Those on the other side of the pond, who care little about the USD, and who pay for everything in euros, and paid for everything in euros back in 2008, are not quite so fortunate. As the chart below shows, Brent priced in Euros is literally just off its all time previous highs of €92.88. At last check it was just over €86. Which means that the European economy is about to, literally, grind to a halt.
