What an overall crazy week it has been in the markets, but the good news is that rates have actually been improving, sticking with the theory that bad news is good news for interest rates. The issues going on in the Middle East, oil prices drastically increasing, and the stock market on decline have contributed to improvements in rates over the last week. This will most likely continue over the coming months. No one sees any light at the end of the tunnel and oil prices will probably continue to increase through the busy fuel months into the summer.
