B.

a drop leads to X, Y, and Z.

Ironically, oil is in strong demand now; prices are high; however, $ is pretty cheap.

B should be the answer; it is clear and concise

A is same as B but as well as is not as concise as B
C implies that a drop in oil prices should lead to fear about inflation which is wrong and changes the meaning of the sentence. The drop in oil prices should lead to a lowering of fear...
D; passive form to be avoided and also lack of parrallellism
E; again passive form and even more convoluted

Let me make the elimination simpler...

Look for parallelism (smthg with GMAT tests very much)..Based on this Principle, only B and C meet the criteria. (note that the next clause starts with "a"..so lowering should also begin with a)

Now, for B..thereis this redundant "of"...a lowering of ..and "of" fears..

Compare this with C..a lowering of...,along with (a lowering of) fears of ..

the (a lowering of) is understood.

My reasoning maketh any sense??

One view of economy contends (something)
that
a large drop in oil prices (noun)
should eventually lead to
a lowering of interest rates (effect=noun) and a lowering of fears about inflation ,
a rally in stocks and bonds,
and
a weakening of the dollar.

Only B and C are parallel because these choices use "a" before each noun.

"along with" is either used as adverb or adjective. What you need is a
conjuction to combine two nouns.

B stands out.
