Barclays and Bank of America see looming oil crunch

Bank of America and Barclays Capital, two leading oil traders, have told clients to brace for crude above $100 (£64) a barrel by next year, before it pushes relentlessly higher over the decade.

If they are right, (and based on simple mathematics they are) we can kiss goodbye to any recovery until things get really bad again, at which point the price will most likely drop again, and the talking heads will start talking about green shoots again, and the price will rise again.

Rinse and repeat.

Really who knows what will happen, but some or all of this future is hard to rule out as a likely possibility.
