Retailers or consumers: who benefits from low oil prices at the pump?

Report summary

As the price of Brent progressively made its way below the US$50/bbl mark, with over 40% decrease since the beginning of 2014, the debate over how much this is reflected to the customers is reheated, especially in Europe where prices at the pump fell by a mere 13% on average. Asymmetry in price transmission, also known as 'rockets and feathers' effect, is again the main focus of the media articles covering the subject.
