Well, I suppose this is the closest a mainstream media outlet will get in addressing conspiracy theories.
The Washinton Post has issued a story detailing the various conspiracy theories out there as to the drop in oil prices, including two rather

Goldman exec) asked them to in order to drive prices down.
The Post even quotes an oil analyst that says the reason for the price drop is because of the Goldman move.
