Are lower fuel prices here to stay? What are the implications for jet fuel supply and demand?

There are diverging views on the recent drop in oil prices and even more difference in opinion about the implications for energy supply and demand.  An expert panel of speakers will discuss aspects of this uncertain future, the impact on investments in exploration and fracking and the effects of reduced jet fuel prices on the strength of air travel and on airline decisions.
