Oil Event

Recommended Posts

I just got this event:

An unexpected drop in the price of oil per barrel has surprised your nation. Should you take action?

The options were to release the oil, and get +3 happiness, or Build infrastructure within your nation to store the oil while it is cheap to buy. Citizen income -$2.00 ,Population happiness -2.

Now, I checked what my infrastructure cost before I chose my response. I then picked the second option, hoping to get cheaper infra. The price stayed the same.

Is this an error? Is the purpose of this event to trick people?

What experience has every one else had with this event?

Luckily, I had waited as close as I could to the event expiration date so that I wouldnt have that penalty for too long...

So it saying "buy infra in your nation to store oil when its cheap" isnt supposed to elude that infra is going to be cheaper?

Cheap refers to the oil. Not to the infrastructure.

I had this events about 3 times in my 283 day life and I always picked the +3 happiness option. And plus, if it said "build infra while its cheap," it would have said something like "decrease infra cost -5%" or something. Just my 2 cents or should I say, just my 3+ happiness! (its a joke)
