9:25 a.m What can the air travel recovery tell us about the economy?

The air travel industry is recovering from a historic downturn due to the COVID19 pandemic. How far does it still have to go and how long will it take to complete? What constraints are there on air travel? And what can the experience of aviation tell us about the economy?

(And Let’s Hope It Doesn’t Go Any Higher)

In his presentation, Jankowski will explain the factors keeping energy prices elevated, whether OPEC has the capacity to increase output, why U.S. output hasn’t returned to pre-pandemic levels, and why gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel prices will remain elevated well into 2023.
