Default Anyone know the organization that forecasts oil/heating/gas prices?

Hi, I'm looking for an organization that does research / forecasts oil, heating, and gas prices for the consumer.

Something that says "the consumer will be expected to pay $- more for heating in the coming months..."

anyone know??

Why seek predictions when you can find out to the penny?

try NYMEX futures - contracts for delivery of oil or other petroleum products several months or years ahead

for nonmarket predictions, look at companies like OPIS

So funny. My wife is an economist for the Energy Information Administration that is linked above. That is exactly what she does. She is the talking head you hear on NPR talking about heating oil and gas price projections over the winter.
