The article presents a price report for the chemical industry as of September 2008. Spot ethylene prices were flat, despite the shut down of most crackers in Louisiana and around Port Arthur, Texas ahead of the storm. Spot naphtha in Europe slumped $80 per metric tons. Spot olefins prices also fell. There was a one-penny increase in the September contract for U.S. benzene, and neither buyer or seller appear happy with the deal.
