Oil prices are forecast to range between $80 per barrel and $90 pb, largely due to fall of demand as compared to supplies. Oil expert Khaled Boudai told KUNA in an interview that the predicted decrease of the crude price would be as a result of fall of supplies of Iranian, Iraqi and Libyan oil, with the international economic blockade on Iran is forecast to ease off, Iraqi crude output would climb and Libyan crude exports would resume. Forecast rise of the oil supplies, in 2014, will range between 1.5 to two million barrels per day, thus a market glut is foreseen,...

Wide-scale output of shale oil is ruled out, said Boudai in the remarks to KUNA, also noting that cost of extraction of this type of oil is too high, $80-70 pb.

We hear these predictions all the time, but the oil companies will find a way to keep the domestic price up.

Oh something will happen to keep prices high. Perhaps there will be "tension in the Middle East" as has been used before to keep prices high.

The differance between a wholesale price increase and a wholesale price decrease is that one gets passed on the the consumer.

That is better than having a rise in prices, but still not enough of a fall.

Whether this will actually pan out, of course, is questionable. It should, given market supply and demand forces.

That's still twice what it should be but at least it's got us exploring, drilling and fracking for our own oil here in the U.S.

Nor-easter means less driving, but more home heating fuel use. Let's hope that the price does go down to $80 barrel. We could use some economic relief.

Big oil and speculators will never allow the price of oil/refined products to come down - they would be forced to give up the lifestyle we have allowed them to become accustomed to.

Sounds more realistic than a previous article I read stating that prices started the year on the upswing on HOPES of demand increase.

With more and more supply sources coming into the mix and continued decrease in demand, I would hope that prices would eventually be forced down.

We'll have to see what the prices drop to. I do not see an abundance in supplies pushing the Brent price that low. Demand in China and India will continue to grow which will provide a market for oil.
