WTF!? Oil drops to 50 cents a barrel!?!?

Hmmm, your OP is confusing. Did you see oil drop to 50 cents/barrel or by 50 dents per barrel?
The second one would be nothing new prices fluctuate all the time. The first one would be unprecedented and either a huge mistake or joke.

It's much more likely that the rate of decline dropped from 54 cents to 51 cents.
So if the price was $100, it was just recently $99.46, and then at the announcement became $99.49
There's simply no way in hell that oil would drop TO $50 cents a barrel without....uh...I dunno....us entering some alternative reality or something.

Oh the way to work this morning I did hear them say that oil prices dropped so they expect the price of gas to drop by 50 cents. But that is all they said.
