  德州開業 油價崩跌


德州州長艾伯特宣布德州全州將從週五開始局部開啟商業活動,各地之零售商可以讓顧客們路邊取貨,全州各大公園及社區運動區也同時開放讓市民們活動,但是要密切注意社交距離並戴口罩,以防阻疫情之惡化。

在此同時,世界油價首次狂跌至負數,今日西德州油價在十二元左右,其中最重要的原因是由於新冠疫情在全球肆虐,工商業停滯,能源需求量激減,加上沙特和俄羅斯之間的矛盾,催化了石油價之崩盤。

德州休斯敦是世界能源之都,對我們經濟之影響可謂史無前例,今年可能有五百家能源公司因而倒閉。

川普總統再度宣布撥款近五千億元為中小企業紓困,並將在近期內宣佈啟動美國的國家基礎建設, 這也是拯救經濟的最後一招了。

布希總統家族在六十年代從東部新英格蘭來到德州西部開發能源,寫下了美國政治之傳奇,如今事過境遷,如何再造輝煌,只待後人之智慧和努力了。


      Texas To Open For Business As Oil Plunges To Historic Low


Texas Governor Abbott announced that the state of Texas will open partially for business starting this Friday. All retail stores can open, but will be limited to roadside pickup. The state also announced the opening of all the state parks, but the Governor asked all people to still keep practicing social distancing and to wear a mask in all the public areas.


Yesterday, the price of west Texas crude oil collapsed to its lowest price point in history. The main reason for the dramatic drop is that the demand is almost gone at the same time the whole world is suffering from the attack of the Coronavirus pandemic.


As the oil capital of the world, our hometown Houston will be suffering with over more than five hundred oil-related companies going out of business. President Trump has also just announced another 480 billion dollars to rescue small businesses. The White House is also considering to start a national infrastructure project to stimulate the failing U.S. economy.


In the early 1960’s, President Bush’s family moved to west Texas to explore the energy business venture that has lasted for so many years. The Bush family created a long-standing political and economic legend in American history.
