Opinion: Why oil prices must go up

Green Car Congress

It may be difficult to look beyond the current pricing environment for oil, but the depletion of low-cost reserves and the increasing inability to find major new discoveries ensures a future of expensive oil.

The situation will compound itself if oil prices stay low. by Nick Cunningham of
