    I understand that falling oil prices are bad for the oil industry, but shouldnt they be good for everybody else? Auto, chemicals, airlines, railroads, agriculture, manufacturing, housing, and consumer spending in general? We could add in utilities if natural gas prices follow suit.

    Thanks Bill. Like Tom, it was never clear to me why falling oil prices were (or even could be0 bad. You cleared it up with the notion that decreased global growth might be the underlying cause. I never considered it and now believe it to be quite unlikely. Over supply (my instinctive explanation) seems a far better explanation.
