Weekly Roundup – $100 Oil Edition

In case you missed it, the price of oil broke $100/barrel this week. On top of that, my wife told me that she spent over $50 filling the tank on our Honda Odyssey for the first time ever this weekend. Instead of letting the high prices get you down, however, Jeremy at GenXFinance thinks you should use the high prices as an opportunity to make money.

    Tell me about it. We just spent close to $50 filling up our MINI cooper.

    I suppose with our efforts to decrease total mileage we’ll break even (or maybe even save some $). Last year we drove 2,600 miles less than in 2006. Good for the environment and the pocketbook!!!

    Apparently only one contract was traded over $100. Probably some guy who wanted to be the first to buy oil over $100 🙂 Nevertheless, it is probably not going to be the last time.
