2013: Year of $50 Oil and $1,200 Gold?

CNBC via Yahoo! Finance -- Drastic falls in the price of oil and gold, doubling of the yield in 30-year Treasurys and mass nationalizations in Japan's struggling electronics industry may be on the agenda next year.

Steen Jakobsen, chief economist at Saxo Bank, argued that the "revolution" in shale gas in the U.S. could push down to $50.

Sabine Schels, senior director and global commodity strategist at BofA Merrill Lynch Global Research,has also argued that the cost of oil could hit these lows.

Too bad they didn't explain the prediction of the price of gold falling. What happened to everyone complaining about the devaluing of the dollar? Wouldn't that keep the price of gold at an all-time high?

$50 oil? I shudder in ecstasy to think of $1.50 gas!”

Be careful what you ask for. I don’t think that most people are ecstatic about a depression, which is what it would take to get $1.50 gas.

I'll believe it when I see it. Gold prices are driven by the economy and I don't see the economy improving enough to lower the price of gold. The "experts" say that on a bad economy, gold prices increase.

$50 oil may sound good but it will mean very bad economic conditions, with rising unemployment, reduction in gas consumption and then cut back in exploration and production by oil companies. Then as the economy improves gas consumption will out pace production resulting in a shortage and oil prices rising to over $120 and gasoline over $4 again

Just face it gas in the $3 range is the new normal
Factoring inflation over the last 40 years $3 gas is on par with most goods
a car that cost $4,000 in 1979 is now $19,000, bread is $now over 1.50 and milk over $3.00
