The price of Brent crude oil has shed about 34 per cent since October, with shares in Australia’s three biggest oil producers falling by more than 20 per cent over the same period. London Capital Group’s Jasper Lawler says the downturn in oil prices will result in "significant" deflationary pressure. However, airlines, mining companies and motorists are set to benefit from the sustained fall in the oil price, while US Bank Wealth Management’s Rob Haworth says OPEC’s recent cut in oil production may not be sufficient to offset weakening global demand and rising US shale output.
