Sensing some gas price inflation in 2020

Comment on the December 15 prediction: We got the rest that Wednesday, so the prediction was CORRECT.

Sunday, December 29, 2019, 2PM: It looks like commodities bottomed out in August, when oil traded at about $51 a barrel. More upward action last week in oil, now at almost $62 a barrel. That’s why we got the price hike on Thursday, and it appears the typical late December-May upward move in gas prices has started. I usually don’t look ahead several months, but I think we’ll see $3 gas again in 2020. But, for the coming week, we appear to be safe from another price hike.

  1. Wouldn’t be surprised to see gas at $3 bucks a gallon by the first day of spring and $3.25+ leading up to Memorial Day since oil is so much higher than it was last year at this time. Crude finished out 2018 at just over $45 a barrel

  2. Going to $2.85/2.95 in Chicagoland this evening in an expected hike.

  3. As of 1:00AM Crude is 2.7l% higher than the 01/02 closing bell, probably all of it in response to the Baghdad airstrike. There is no telling what will happen at the opening bell today but we all can make a fairly accurate guess. I will be topping off today just in case.
