Where are your energy experts now?
Earlier this year, energy experts were jumping in front of microphones to declare that gasoline prices would rise to the range of $5.50 - $6.00 per gallon during this year. On May 20, on a CNBC morning show, one expert declared that gasoline would rise to the $12 - $15 per gallon range. Educated at the finest schools, employed by big-name corporations, paid unholy sums of money for their knowledge, these experts all waited in line for their chance to dance in national forums and warn of ever-increasing gasoline prices.
On June 10, a lone voice came from out of the wilderness; only one humble soul had the courage and genius to publicly go against the experts and dare to suggest that gasoline prices would drop to $3.50 per gallon range by November 1. Of course, our hero was right; here it is, Oct 4 and the national price of Gasoline is down to $3.63 per gallon and trending lower, while here in Waukegan, IL the major brand price is already down to $3.51 per gallon, and $3.41 at the cut-rate stations.
Our hero patiently awaits his awards; he does prefer cash.
