In the past year or so, ice prices have dropped by nearly 50%. This dropped seem to be in line with when the new jumpgates were added. I suppose it would make sense that with many capitals now using the jump gate networks, ice demand would drop greatly. The new jump gates use very little ice to run.
I really don’t know why CCP didn’t make the new jump gates use a lot more ice as fuel than they did. A lot of people mine ice but it has became such low income now.
Currently it’s on a very bad low. It has had its ups and downs over time, eventually going back up in price again. That’s because eventually something was always changed to increase demand.
