Inputs on the DME side of the business are purchased methanol and methanol that NOEC produces from coal. Since these have dropped along with oil, input costs are now less. If the price of NOEC's output, DME, drops slower than the price of methanol and coal they make more money. If it drops faster, they make less. Like oil refiners, all that matters is if profit margin increases or decreases. Oil could be at $10 and profits could actually increase.
