My Opinion:Oil To $80 A Barrel

My opinion is that this craziness we are seeing in the spike in oil prices will not stop until we hit $80 a barrel. I think that by the end of this year or the begging of '06 we will be seeing oil hitting $80 a barrel and wishing it was once back down at $2.00 a gallon.

I hope so... Will Bush parachute land on a refinery with a sign saying "Mission Accomplished, Oil Companies are now richer than ever???"

Why do you think this? I have no technical response, but I don't think it will get quite that high before next summer.

Do you have any facts to support your opinion?

The facts are everywhere. Look who we have as our president and vice president. Look we have controlling the oil industry. I mean these facts dont prove the point that oil will go up that high. But we will see, we will see.

Jeez, all the moonbats were constantly repeating the Michael Moron talking points and said we went to Iraq to take all the oil.

Well damnit, I want my Iraqi oil already.

The funny thing is the same people now blame the President for the high oil prices. If we were pumping Iraq dry and oil was $25 per barrel, they'd be the ones screaming bloody murder over that too. Typical liberal hypocrisy.

Because the shady world-government will reveal it's full plan in due time.... just-kidding

And besides, just becasue Halliburton wanted to control the oil in Iraq doesn't mean they wanted to let it flow.

Granted, I'm just making the last statement not because I actually believe Halliburton is involved in the who-hah in Iraq, but just as a hypothetical.

A major factor in the oil problem is that there's just no more refining capacity.

I wouldn't be surprised at $80/bbl oil this fall, especially with demand for home heating oil, and more oil for electric power generation, combined with still low production from Iraq and who knows what in the middle east as well as insatiable demand from the PRC and the rest of Asia. Still, inflation adjusted, it would have to reach $90/bbl to equal the pricing levels of 1980. You are looking at $2.60-$3.40/gallon for gasoline and diesel in the USA and $7.00+ in Europe. It's too bad the oil holding countries are getting all of this money, too bad some of it couldn't be redistributed to feed and assure basic needs for much poorer countries.

With this being the case, then why can't we take them to court like the worldcom/ enron boys got??? Fleesing america and draining her dry should be a criminal charge of some sort you would hope. Out here in ROC (just arrived this morning about 1130am) gas is suppose to jump 10 freakin cents over night!!!! 2.59 by morning from 2.49. This is for the cheap crap!!!  eyepopping   mad 
Now why the price jumps over night is criminal when you figure that the cost changes regardless if the truck comes that day or not. Wasn't there a law stating that the price per gallon couldn't rise until the new shipment came in??

Why does everyone say the price of oil is going up due to lack of refinery capacity? Thats like saying the lack of bakeries causes flour prices to go up.

The reasons for the sky-high oil prices are here to stay, and have nothing, zero, nada to do with who you have in the white house. I'd be willing to certify that if Al Gore had been president in 2000, and had continued the Clinton fuel policies, oil today would be at EXACTLY the same price.

The reasons for high prices are simply that demand now exceeds supply capacity. Europe and the U.S. have not been increasing their consumption very much, but China and India have, along with all the other developing nations.

This was the situation 5 years ago. I haven't found a more current chart yet.

CAPACITY
PRODUCTION* CAPACITY USED (%)
MAJOR OPEC
SAUDI ARABIA 7.8 10.8 72%
IRAN 3.4 3.7 92
VENEZUELA 2.8 3.0 93
IRAQ 2.6 2.8 93
KUWAIT 1.9 2.7 70
UAE 2.1 2.5 84
NIGERIA 2.0 2.2 91
LIBYA 1.4 1.5 93

OTHER LARGEST
UNITED STATES 8.1 8.1 100
RUSSIA 6.2 6.2 100
MEXICO 3.0 3.3 91
CHINA 3.2 3.2 100
NORWAY 3.1 3.1 100
UNITED KINGDOM 2.9 2.9 100
CANADA 2.6 2.6 100

I don't have the breakdown, but right now the world is running at around 98% capacity - perfectly beleivable when you take into account the explosive growth in asian countries and in thei demand for oil.

According to some, oil production will probably soon decline! According to energy investment banker Matthew Simmons, of Simmons & Co International, Saudi Arabia and Iran have damaged their fields by overproducing (to fill up your SUV's cheap), and their production capacity is now declining.

Which means, in a nutshell, that

1) $65 per barrel is only the beginning. Look for $100 or more by the end of next year (my opinion)

2) Drilling the Alaskan fields will certainly lower prices, maybe by $5, $10 maximum.

3) If you own a gas guzzler, I suggest you get rid of it before nobody will buy it from you. (I sold mine nearly 18 months ago)

Even those who ride bicycles, use public transportation and fly on airplanes will be effected by this. Buses, trucks, railroads and aircraft use feul an the increase in prices will be passed off to the consumer. Severe economic trouble is on the horizon if what you say is true.

Jail the speculators and crooks.
forcr the media to stop talking about oil, increasing the fears.
1 example: the death of King Faad. Why an increase of oil prices? What changes? The king was sick, and not ruling te country anymore since the mid nineties. But the combination media+speculators made a lot of hype. The result? the price that was slowly starting to decrease ,jumped again.
Investigate on the incidents in the refineries in the States. Is it really accidental, or a little bit helped? (just enough to spread the fear of oil shortage....)
Of course, Ali Burton and the more than 40 crooks will never tell you. you will discover it in 40 years, when you will have access to some documents.

The death of Faad was a little reminder that he was probably the last absolute ruler of Saudi Arabia. His brother Abdullah is 81, and won't last very long either, and after he's gone, there are no princes who have a clear line to the throne, so there will be a lot of infighting. Secondly, most of the terrorists that are being captured in Jordan and Syria and Iraq are Saudis. What will happen when eventually they stop blowing themselves up in Iraq, and start blowing themselves up in Saudi Arabia, which was Bin Ladin's principle goal to begin with? Saudi Arabia is headed for huge disruptions in the next 10 years, and anyone who depends on oil from them had better have contingency plans for alternatives.

The problem with hydrogen is that the only practical way to make it in large quantities is from hydrocarbons - i.e. fossil fuels.

The answer is fusion. Anything else is just a stopgap measure. What we need is a Manhatten Project for fusion technology.

Nope, you can electrolyse hydrogen from water. You need more energy to electrolyse the water than you get from the hydrogen however. The benefit is you can use nuclear power, or even solar power to do it - Honda have a solar-powered hydrogen electrolysing station that uses only water and sunlight to supply hydrogen to their hydrogen-powered car.
