“I think you are going to continue to see a $15 to $20 premium in this because of the situation in Iran.”
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) April 04, 2012
On March 30th, 2012 The George Jarkesy Show welcomed Dan Steffens, the President of The Energy Prospectus Group and the Energy Sector Expert of The National Eagles and Angels Association to the Show. Mr. Steffens and host George Jarkesy talked about the current dip in oil prices and the outlook for oil prices going forward in 2012. Mr. Steffens stated that he felt that in regard to the current price of oil just on the fundamentals would be in the $90 range and he stated “I think you are going to continue to see a $15 to $20 premium in this because of the situation in Iran.”
Mr. Steffens also discussed the price being related to talk of President Obama releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to counter the effect of the U.S. and Western sanctions on Iran. Mr. Steffens also cited other factors in the dip in prices including the completion of the quarter and the end of the month. Mr Jarkesy stated, “My take on it is that inflation is going to continue to push oil prices higher.” Interestingly, Mr. Steffens also pointed out the link historically between oil and gold as hedges against inflation and he felt that this is a very good reason to have some exposure to oil in your portfolio as a hedge against inflation.
