With the shift in what has happened with our future, i.e. the election of Barack Obama, the gas prices are also affected by this. I’m currently not seeing the high gas prices I had seen before. I see gas prices going up slowly in 2009, to around $2.60 by the end of the year. In 2010, up to around $3.25/gal to $3.50, and, by 2011, I still see incidences of $4/gallon. I no longer see any spiking like I had before.
And I will say that this can change again, so if this future changes again, I’ll keep posting. I apologize, but for me, trying to read the future of gas prices is like trying to read where a water hose that is out of control is going to spray next. There are many possibilities. I think the above paragraph is close to being generally accurate.
