We will not bet on this particular prediction, but now you can get the feeling: why guys like Fedex are voting for Electrification and, by the way, electric cars are here already (picture gallery).

Oil's Going To $225 By 2012, Says Analyst



Canada's LeaderPost has an excellent article about the coming oil price surge and the need for uber-aggressive efficiency projects.
LeaderPost.com:
Chinese consumers are buying more than a million cars a month -- and in India when the US$2,500 Nano went on sale, more than 200,000 were ordered in the first two weeks. Adding millions of cars a month to roads will inevitably drive up oil prices.
Jeff Rubin, the former chief economist for CIBC World Markets, predicts that the price of oil will rise to US$225 a barrel by 2012. For readers who dismiss Rubin, think about this:We are in the midst of the biggest recession since the Great Depression and oil has already risen above US$80 a barrel. In 2003, few pundits would have thought US$80 oil was possible. (And Rubin's past predictions have proven deadly accurate: In 2006, he predicted oil would hit US$150 a barrel in 2008.)"
