Crude oil for June delivery dropped $1.84, or 3.6%, to $49.71 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Earlier, the contract slumped nearly 7% to hit an intraday low of $48.01 a barrel.

I can't believe oil prices are being effected by the swine flu... i mean c'mon this makes no sense, what are these guys trying to pull? ... i thought it would be companies who sold pork products that would be more likely to see a change in their prices ...

what are your thoughts?
