Russia's Gazprom predicts $250 oil by 2009

DEAUVILLE, France (Reuters) - Russia's Gazprom (GAZP.MM: Quote, Profile, Research), the supplier of a quarter of Europe's natural gas, expects the price of crude oil to almost double as the decade draws to a close, taking gas prices with it.

Yea, that's right $250 a barrel! Just think, 7 years ago, "before everything changed" oil was $30-$35 a barrel. Is this due to the falling dollar, increased withholding of oil(Iraq doesn't export nearly as much as they used too) or a combination of the two?

Switching globally to a standard currency for oil, other than the dollar, might stabilize the prices some, but is it worth finshing the fragging of the U.S. economy.

Or, are we all just completely screwed regardless of what the TPTB decide to do?
