The article presents information on the European Petro-Chemical Association meeting in Monte Carlo, Monaco. The oil price may have dropped by $20 per barrel over the past month, but energy costs were still high on the meeting's agenda. Rather than second-guessing where the price of feedstock is heading, delegates are starting to look at feasible ways of passing on prices, or even fixing the cause rather than the symptoms of high energy costs.
