Odds on how high
could oil prices get published
Whether you drive SUV getting 13 mpg or not, the high gas
prices are affecting you in every aspect of your daily life.
Some people turn on the TV on in the afternoon simply to see how
high the oil prices got that day and how much more expensive
their life will become tomorrow. Oil prices have been
fluctuating for almost a year now driving gas prices in the US
and elsewhere through the roof. That much is not news. What is
news however is the fact that oil prices rose sharply Friday on
news that a ship under contract to the U.S. Defense Department
fired warning shots at two boats in the Persian Gulf. Retail gas
prices as expected rose further into record territory nearing
$3.60 a gallon.
With tension and speculation in America
rising as exponentially as the prices themselves, one of the
most popular sportsbooks on the web,
BetUS, posted odds on just
where the ceiling is with regard to oil prices. "With news of the warning shots being
fired spreading, site users and those curious and or worried
alike have been flooding our site. The fact is,
people know we are an unbiased, accurate source for predictive
information ranging from everything from sports, politics, and
international news. We feel obliged to provide accurate, up to
the minute information," stated BetUS spokesman Reed Richards.
And yes, the oddsmakers at BetUS posted the following odds on the world's
Nymex Crude price 31-12-08 o/u $129
USD v Euro price 31-12-08 o/u 0.67
USD v GBP price 31-12-08 o/u 0.49
Average price of gas in US at the pump 31-12-08 o/u $4.17
Are oil prices going up - you bet!
