US heavy equipment maker Caterpillar said that the plunge in oil prices took a hit on the company's earnings in the fourth quarter of 2014US heavy equipment maker Caterpillar said Tuesday that the plunge in oil prices took a hit on the company's earnings in the fourth quarter of 2014. It also said it did not expect much of an upturn this year, with mining commodities still in a slump as the global economy grows slowly and with sweeping cutbacks in investment by the oil industry. The company reported a slight decline in fourth quarter revenues from a year earlier and a sharper drop in profits, falling short of its own forecasts. Chairman and chief executive Doug Oberhelman said that despite the profit miss in the fourth quarter, the company had a better year than originally predicted, and improved on 2013.

FILE - In this image Dec. 11, 2012 file photo, provided by the West Virginia State Police, shows a fireball erupting across Interstate 77 from a gas line explosion in Sissonville, W.Va. Accident investigators issue a report and safety recommendations based three powerful gas transmission line explosions in California, Florida and West Virginia. In each case, the gas company failed conduct inspections or tests that might have revealed weaknesses in the massive pipelines. In the California accident, 9 people were killed and 70 homes destroyed. In the West Virginia incident, the stretch of pipeline that ruptured, igniting a fire that destroyed three homes and damaged several others, hadn’t been inspected or tested for 24 years. (AP Photo/West Virginia State Police)WASHINGTON (AP) — Three powerful accidents in recent years highlight weaknesses in the oversight of how natural gas providers maintain the largest pipelines in their networks, accident investigators said Wednesday as they issued more than two dozen safety recommendations.
