Abstract:

The main goal of this paper is to examine the relationship between crude oil and oil product prices. Many observers have attributed to part of spike in oil products price is because of lack of competition and demand and supply which prompts sellers to increase prices hence increased profit margins. However, according to Bacon (1991), noted the relationship between crude oil and oil product prices appear to be asymmetrical, “rockets and feathers” pattern whereby when price of crude oil goes up, the price of oil products go up like a rocket but when the price of crude oil goes down, the price of the oil products will move down sluggishly like a feather. Therefore, we will explore the price relationship of crude oil and oil products in long-term and also find out if any deviations in prices can be used to predict short-term price changes. We will examine the behavior of individual crude oil and oil products prices using time series techniques. Also we will implement strategies that will reduce the spreads.
