Prices of jet fuel have been highly volatile. Prices shown here, from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, are reflective of world market prices in U.S. dollars. In New Zealand, additional volatility is introduced by the fluctuations of the N.Z. dollar against the U.S. dollar. Volatility in oil markets poses a challenge for airlines. An increase in crude oil prices lifts the industry’s largest input cost. But a price decrease can lead to lower airfares, spurring demand for travel and pushing airlines to increase capacity.
