The economic slowdown + the fear of a recession are contributing to the decreasing demand for oil in the developed countries as well as the developing countries.

Shall we have a poll on what the general opinion is, and the forecast for the oil prices on the 31st of May 2009? Please join the poll.....

Oil prices in May

This seems to be the second poll asking the people to speculate on the oil prices. The last one on a parallel thread asked an opinion on oil prices at the end of the year '08 and I was surprised to see that most number of people predicted correctly, saying that the prices would be less than $50 a barrel. We have seen a lot of highs and lows in the oil prices in the past 6 months.. from hitting a high at $147 a barrel to languishing at $36 a barrel. I feel that the right oil prices for May will be in the range of $40 to $50 a barrel. Judging by the currrent economic situation and the result or the failure of the games played by the OPEC and sister countries, it will be nothing short of a miracle to push the oil prices to above $50 a barrel.

Request to the people who answer this poll. Do write a few sentences on why you think that the oil prices will be what you are predicting. Thanks.

Predict the oil prices?

Predict the oil prices? Not really. Mine will be more of a guess.

I do not want to predict and sound like the many analysts in the financial world who predicted over and over again until the markets crashed and are still crashing. But guessing - I will do.

My guess is that the oil prices will hover between $35 & $45. I will wait until 31st of May to check if I am right.

Positive signs of the price being over US$ 55

The price is already rallying around $50 now.

With the Dow Jones rising, it does not mean that the good old days are back. But it will definitely be a bit better than Jan 2009.
So, the price has to rise. Me thinks..

But the financial markets are still down. Loans are not available to traders easily. So the market will not see a dramatic rise. So the oil prices settling betwwen 55 and 60 during end-May would be a good estimate.

This is my opinion only. Please do not hold me up on my words.

Predicatble now?

It is now close to the 31st of May 2009. It is about $53 now.

So it looks like the price is actually going to be anywhere between $55 - $65? :|

The oil price crossed $65. A bit better that the Worldoils poll

The oil price did cross $65 at the end of May. A bit better than the Worldoils poll.

Let us look at the next oil price poll now. Personally, I have a few thoughts which I shall refine and add in the next poll.
