Also there are so many new ways to get oil and the prospects of nat gas are so dynamic,” a spike of that magnitude is almost out of the question.“Sure Brent could go to $115,” he admits. “But it wouldn’t last.” Unless current events devolve into a massive geo-political circumstance (like a war) Gartman says, “oil trades about where it is or lower – not higher.Now that’s not to say oil’s current rally will stop dead in its tracks – that’s not the point. “Oh sure, oil could have another $2-$3 dollars to go,” Gartman admits, but that’s it.
