To create more transparency for motorists, because coming back for more allegations to light, there was price-fixing among providers. Dallas, 07.06.2013 – prove the authorities could not this far yet. Nevertheless, it already wonder how Magic gas stations nationwide adjust prices. The Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Cartel Office want to implement a gasoline price point in the autumn, where motorists can seek out the best vendors in real time via mobile phones or navigation device. Already there are spat about this decision, because the oil company shell does not agree with this decision. Shell fears competitive advantages, if provider sign their new rates earlier than others these may be just right the consumer, because it is only then a competitive advantage if gasoline prices fall below (link). In Germany, the car driver barely understand this debate.
Them also not revealed why the currently lower crude oil prices not too favorable Lead petrol prices? Because supply is obvious enough. As recently confirmed the Organization of the petroleum exporting countries (OPEC) to maintain its official production target of 30 million barrels daily. nvestors has firm opinions on the matter. As a major OPEC producer, Saudi Arabia, even in addition expanded its production in May and thus supported the oversupply. Also the Iraq will clearly put and give additional production in the market. The more production is always more cost-effective, even if oil prices among other things by the oversupply would have declined. For months, the OPEC countries produce more oil than is in demand? For the second half of OPEC expected a reduction of the over-supply, although, since then, experience has shown that the demand increases.
This view is strengthened by speculative financial investors, also posed by rising prices. As the price of Brent of North Sea oil rose on Monday by 1.5 percent to about 102 dollars, after it in the morning for the first time since a month back under 100 Dollar was quoted. However, can be stated, that the international oil prices fall, what that would actually affect petrol prices at the pumps. It does not, but maybe it’s because we are standing so close before the summer holidays. A truism is that more fuel is consumed and there is no alternative to the car for many citizens. Not even need price-fixing. This makes also the ADAC in a recent press release carefully (link). There is a stable price level in the oil market advantage for investors of oil interests such as those by Amtex. You can rely on continuous capital inflows from the sale of liquid gold. While the existing and economically viable produced occurrence, as well as the technical requirements of the respective production units plays an important role. Amtex this relies on experienced on-site partners, the management is invested also with its own capital, causing an interest equal sound between investors and providers.

The social hot topic of in coming years. The ongoing trend of democratization leads with the technological possibilities of digitization in a world of comprehensive transparency where it is becoming less and less possible and hardly useful to have secrets.

2. difficulties in the application of the balanced scorecard, it is very difficult to evaluate the process of the introduction of the BSC in the society because many years must go for getting the objective results. This time much of the activity of the company changes. The introduction to the first stage, i.e. the development of the strategic goals for the top management, happens quickly enough and clear, but the rise covered himself further with the problems, because he calls the large extent of the preparatory and explanatory work. In this case, the participation of the head of the corresponding outline is mandatory. 3. absence of rapid results getting the weighted results of activity is possible only in the course of several years.
Therefore, the most serious problem in the lack of understanding by the top management of the objectives of the introduction of the balanced scorecard in the fast changing market conditions can arise. In the development of the balanced scorecard for the separate divisions of the Company cannot use the benefits of the BSC in the context of the whole of society, and as a result you get the much smaller effect, completely that an arbitrary arrangement of society with a whole series of other subdivisions acts together and, undoubtedly, depends on the quality of their work. 4. difficulty in assessing the importance of KPIs the selection of KPIs is a responsible enough and ambiguous process. Especially it becomes obvious, when determining which happens not financial indicators. The key figures are constantly checked in societies, and the provision of non financial indicators, particularly in the first stage, is enough complicated because of their ambiguity.
