Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
bit before my time, but IIRC WTI made its appearance about 1982 and has always been pretty volatile.

My gut says the volatility occurred in 1980.  It just took place in the cash market out of sight of the average consumer and the media.  

Perhaps it was less then just because the 7 sisters had a much bigger piece of the pie and the producing nations were still under their thumbs.
