With crude prices hovering around $50 per barrel, Latin America and the Caribbean’s energy producers and consumers have had to reevaluate their plans for 2015. In particular, lower oil prices have put pressure on producers’ budgets, while consumers benefit through lower spending on energy imports.

Americas Society/Council of the Americas’ Energy Action Group will hold a public discussion on the price of oil’s impact on Latin America and the Caribbean. The panel will examine the macro consequences of the oil price shift on the region.​
