  1. Three points that was missing in the video. 1.Many oil companies hedge their production at higher than current market prices. They will continue to produce because they have a guaranteed buyer. 2. Buyers that have future oil contracts can short the oil market to help off set paying higher prices later. 3.Hedge funds and big banks can also short the oil market driving prices even lower.
