The article focuses on chemical markets trends in the U.S. in March 2007. Propylene rolled over from February to March, but prices are poised to firm. Softening butadiene prices in March came as a surprise to some, as the market has been tight due to production problems. March benzene contracts rose by 33 cents per gallon to $3.59 per gallon.
