So, being in the fuel industry, I monitor our daily/weekly/monthly sales.; I have noticed that especially in the last 10 days, sales have been rather slow.
Back in the day, my dad told me that Lotto sales would drop up to 55% when there was a carry over to the next week’s draw.
The same principle applies to the fuel industry. So this means that it is temporary, and is normal to have less sales in such a circumstance. Consumers are waiting for he price decrease, living on the bare minimum fuel consumption until the first Wednesday of June 2012.
So, chin up melancholy Mons, this too shall pass!
