SKOKIE, Ill.— The falling cost of oil will not just impact consumers at the pump, but will lead to an impact on construction in the United States this year. Portland Cement Association (PCA) Chief Economist and Group Vice-president Edward J. Sullivan believes that short-term gains could be made in the housing market, but could have a negative effect if the downward trend continues.
