2013 gas prices could be steady

WLFI -- WEST LAFAYETTE, Indiana - Experts are saying gas prices could remain steady all throughout this year.

Problems in the Middle East or with any other supplier could shoot prices up. A local refinery fire could also make prices increase temporarily. But in general, experts say the outlook is pretty good for gas prices.

Purdue Ag Economist Wally Tyner said prices should be steady. Tyner said in the last four or five years, the United States has increased oil production by 25 percent. He said the U.S. will continue to increase oil production which is a good thing for years to come.

Tyner said a lot of this year's prices will depend on Congress.

"If they don't come to some kind of agreement that avoids this sequester of funds, spending goes down. That means the economic growth goes down.

equal chance of below, normal or above current prices in the future. Take your pick. Hindsight is always 20/20.

2013 gas prices could be steady? 2013 gas prices could be higher? 2013 gas prices could be lower? Make up you mind!
The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon - *$3, *$3.50/gallon or *$4.00 is Not the new low!
The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens! These resources are Not to be exported without taking care of the domestic market first. Speculators, manipulators and the banks continue to unfairly and unjustly make the driving public pay higher prices at the pump for their personal greedy benefit.
More Refineries are Not the answer, Stop exporting fuel is!
'Coming out of the closet' Sneeky's lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, the jobs are Not here. Sneeky's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population and the job numbers continue to be down!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

This is a more optimistic guess than most I’ve seen but it is still a guess. I find the GasBuddy month-by-month forecast that PD posted a few days ago the most interesting. I printed it and will follow along for the year and see how it does.

Perhaps. . .we'll see, gas prices have been steadily rising the past few weeks and climbed again this week.

Guesses, speculation but no one can predict the prices. May as well use a crystal ball!

This is not good---gas prices need to be going DOWN. Our paychecks (thanks to Obozo) are smaller.

Even if we save money on fuel, our government will find another way to penalize us. They are already doing it.

Who are these "experts" anyway? Just last week the "experts" said that gas prices could be going up. Now they say it could be holding steady. Next week these "experts" need to tell us that gas prices could be dropping. That ways, no matter what happens, they'll be right.

One source says they are going up and another says they are going to remain steady. So what are we to believe.
