    NYT: The United States now accounts for 10 percent of the world’s oil production. As it sharply curtails imports from countries like Angola and Nigeria, those producers are then compelled to sell their oil to China and other Asian markets at steep discounts, compounding the impact of American production on world markets.

    Geopolitical turmoil has been a limited factor in recent weeks largely because shifting conditions in Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Ukraine have not actually disrupted any major oil export streams.

    One reason is that growth in demand for oil, particularly in the United States and Europe, slackened because of increasingly efficient vehicles.

    In a recent report, the AAA auto club predicted that prices would continue to slide through the end of the summer unless a major hurricane hits Gulf of Mexico fields and refineries, or there are other unexpected refinery disruptions.
