A barrel of crude oil fell yesterday to below $49 as North Sea Brent and US Crudedipped towards near six-year lows.

Analysts are tipping petrol prices to fall even further.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch cut its crude oil forecasts, saying Brent could go as low as $31 by the end of the first quarter of 2015. “Stocks all over the world are building at a very fast rate,” the bank analysts said in a note to clients, saying very high inventories would make any sharp recovery in prices much less likely.
