For some reason most people I talk to are oblivious that gas ALWAYS gets really low at election time EVERYTIME.

And these people actually think gas will be getting lower and lower, since its dropped below $2.50 now.... but I don't think that is the case at all. I think this is the lowest it will be for a long time, and it will steadily continue to rise.

MY prediction is regular gas will be at $3.89 on June 1st, 2009.

IF there are any mods that will like to make this a contest and give points to the person who is closest, feel free.

Well depending on how much Inflation sets in because of all this money being printed from no where. And how the world economy looks by then.
I'd say it'd be in the range of 2.80-3.20.

If i understand correctly not much 'cause most of the world population will either be dead or rapurted or taken to an other planet, according to most people here.

So for the ones who survive...i guess a chicken a barrel or maybe half a cow...don't know

Well, this depends on a lot of factors that we can't foresee or control.

So who knows?

If I had to venture a guess though, lets see...

Right now where I live gas is $1.84 (I know
). So I would think in that time, even if it goes up another dollar per gallon, we'd still be under 3 dollars.

I can't imagine it getting back up to above 3 dollars a gallon again without some unforeseen circumstance.

I expect them to be in the high $4 or $5 range again... after all prices always go up in the summer.

I expect it will matter how much we pursue alternative energy sources. Having other energy sources grow will keep the price of fossil fuel down. I see a lot more hybrid cars lately. It's hard to say, it might not change much at all. I too, have noticed though that it always goes down at election time. I think big oil does it in an attempt to help the Republicans.

What?!?! Gas hasn't seen the $1 mark in NY in 6 years at least!

Lets get some exact figures, so we can look back at this in June and see who was the closest!

Honestly?

2 Ameros/Gallon, roughly.

No, this is not a joke or one-liner.

If the whole Amero theory is correct, I can't see the US currency changing that quickly?!? Maybe?!?

To the one in New York, you can thank your high gas tax. Here in florida by my house, jupiter, it's abuot 2.30-2.40. Down at work in west palm it's 2.16-2.19. And 20-30 miles away I heard reports of it under $2. And up in vero beach, 40-50 miles away under $2.

I doubt the NAU will set in the first 4 years of the Obama presidency, it'll be the 4 after that =p.

Personally right now, from a Canadian perspective, in my city gas is selling at 88cents per liter, and I believe it is simply because of the growing recession across the border and spreading to here.
This time of year (holiday season) the economy can't afford a bad blow, so they have lowered the prices of gas in the hopes people will shop for gifts.
In the summer here gas prices always shoot up. I expect they will again.

With the recession in full swing, I'm guessing $1.49

Sorry for the one liner.

I say one Amero, seeing the economy has collapsed by then and were all broke, Unless the NWO decides that a higher price can only be reached by the elite and us sheeple need no transportation.....Could it happen?

I would say it mostly depends on the speculators and generally how much of the financial system they can keep governments from legitimately regulating. If the speculators can be kept at bay and the US government does not then invade another oil producing nation ( to attempt destruction of supply) gas should go well below two dollars and stay there. Either way that's the theory but in truth i am sure those dependent on high oil prices ( no, not OPEC) will find a way to raise prices above the 20-30 dollar range where they already allow a sufficiently large profit margin for industry and oil producing nations.
