BANGKOK Oil markets are taking the death of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in stride, with the price of crude little changed Wednesday.
Chavez, who died Tuesday after a two-year battle with cancer, versaw a decline in oil production during his 14 years as the leader of Venezuela, and analysts don't expect that trend to change immediately. The full impact of his death may not be felt until Venezuela, which sits on the world's second-largest oil reserves, picks a new leader -- one who might choose a course different from Chavez.

Chavez has been terminal for a long time...no surprise that he passed. No signal of change in policy from those who have been running things during his illness, so for the markets, it is not an event until that happens.

There is a darkness in the hearts of some posters here; sadly they're comments that are no better, then the anti-American rhetoric spoken, by a man that was obviously sick and has now passed away!
As much, as I abhorred this dictators goals/methods; two wrongs don't make a right; I also must condemn the hateful thoughts expressed by some of of GB members. Actually the hateful comments, makes those posters look pathetic.

No reaction yet, however anyone who thinks this will keep prices unchanged or in check is simply naive.

With Chavez in declining health for some time, I suspect the markets had already factored in some uncertainty after his death.

Good riddance to Chavez - and here's hoping Venezuela returns to common sense. Yes, of course the oil trade goes on, but maybe now they'll be in a better position to fully take advantage of it.

Who will Obama try to follow now ? Chavez did some good tho, the free heating oil program to the poor in this country. Obama & the democrats have cut the heating program for the needy for the last 2 years.
Bet you didn't see that on TV !!

That's nice to hear for gasoline and petroleum products. Their oil is excellent for gasoline, so really nice to hear.

It will be interesting to see how the oil market will react to Chavez's successor...I doubt there will be little reaction there

TXranger09: Hugo Chavez was reelected. He was in Cuba being treated on Venezuela's the inauguration day. It seems his return was not to govern the country but to die in his country.
