Drat! I filled up last month. Can I contact you in March to see if it's a good time for a refill? :P

I chuckled when I read this little bloggy bit about the forecast price of oil. Apparently investment bank Goldman Sachs predicted $200 oil not long before it all went south.

Now they're predicting $30. To which some wag responded:

“If the call for $30 oil is as accurate as the call for $200 oil, investors may want to fill up their gas tanks and lock in their heating oil prices ASAP,” said Bespoke Investment Group. - Source
