Oil Prices Set to Skyrocket

A fellow blogger over at speculates that oil prices may be going as high as $100/barrel by the end of the year.

…the fundamental assumptions of the oil industry upside down, and that sharply higher oil prices were in the cards, probably $100/barrel by year end.

Major oil companies with deep pockets at risk were rushing to offload their existing offshore leases and partnerships in producing wells to avoid BP’s potential $30 billion hickey.

While we feel $100/barrel is particularly high, it’s nearly impossible to overstress the importance of potential new federal regulations on gulf oil production. Consumers and fleet managers beware.
