I was in San Francisco (incredible city to run...unfortunatley, I could not find the Dutch Windmill...next time) last week attending the Cleantech Forum. Just one year ago, most of the large oil and gas corporate ventures groups were in attendance. This year, there was only one. The price of oil is hovering near $30.00. Last year, the price of oil was ~$55.00 during the same event, the fall had already begun but trips were planned and bags were packed back at $100.00. C'est la vie.
