Gas prices may or may not hit $4 this summer, says A&M professor
Texas A&M professor of economics and fuel analyst of 30 years John Moroney says fuel prices may or may not hit $4/gallon this summer, and are unlikely to hit $5. “Could gas go to $4? It is possible, but not a certainty. Could it go to $5? I just don’t see it happening.”
Professor Moroney said that in order for fuel prices to reach $5/gallon, oil prices would need to be in the range of $140-$150 a barrel. And with oil production on the rise, including findings of huge oil reserves in recent years, and the increase of shale production, Professor Moroney doesn’t see that happening.
