At $117 per barrel, Brent Crude is approaching levels that have historically coincided with reduced economic activity. If prices rise much further (call it above $120), higher gasoline and diesel prices could take their toll on consumers. Thus a pullback in Brent prices appears to be a distinct possibility.

Given that Nymex oil trades at a historically wide discount of nearly $20, it could theoretically fare better than Brent if the spread between the two grades narrows. Yet we expect the spread to stay wide until proved otherwise.

This has been our working assumption for several months now and so far, so good. Perhaps the spread will narrow in the third or fourth quarter of 2013 when Seaway pipeline capacity rises to a nominal 850,000 barrels per day from 400,000.

It is not the price of crude, its the price of gasoline. They have disconnected. Gas has kept going up.

A promise or another dream which seems farther from reality each day as gas prices continue to skyrocket upwards?

"May be" or should be, or will be. All have different meanings.

Oil prices are ridiculously high. The CFTC should be doing its job by stopping greedy Wall Street oil speculators.
