In the summer of 2014, global oil prices began what would become one of the sharpest rates of decline in years.  By January 2015, global oil prices plunged to the lowest values since the depths of the 2009 global recession. After only a slight reprieve, August rolled around and Brent, a global oil price benchmark grade, was trading still lower at around $49 per barrel, a roughly 55 percent decrease since July 2014. The American benchmark crude oil, West Texas Intermediate (WTI), was trading at about $42 per barrel, a 60 percent decline during the same period. 

According to a World Bank Policy Research Note published in April, the plunge in global oil prices was set in motion by a confluence of several factors:

Together these factors have created an oil glut, the effects of which have been compounded by the broad appreciation of the US dollar.  According to the World Bank Note, "Empirical estimates of the size of the U.S. dollar effect cover a wide range: the high estimates suggest that a 10 percent appreciation is associated with a decline of about 10 percent in the oil price, whereas the low estimates suggest 3 percent or less [...] The role of U.S. dollar appreciation - triggered by diverging monetary policies in the United States, Euro Area, and Japan - was an important contributor to the latest decline in commodity prices." (p.14)
