Confessions of an Energy Price Forecaster

John Tobin

This morning you balanced your checkbook with an automatic withdrawal of over $400 for gas and electric for your 4,000-square-foot home. On your way to the airport you filled up your SUV for over $70. You are spending a lot more than you spent last year for practically everything you purchase.

You're mad and want to know what's going on. Are you being gouged? Do the energy companies really earn obscene profits? What's with a new energy policy coming out of Congress every year? Confessions of an Energy Price Forecaster gives you answers but more importantly it helps you understand where these prices are going. After all, you already paid for today's energy. It is really all about being able to plan for the future.

With 180 pages of text as well as 120 graphs, charts, photos, cartoons, and a narrative table of contents, Confessions treats the dismal science of economics, the overall very serious topic of energy and forecasting in a balanced and informative yet humorous manner.

John Tobin is the Executive Director of the Energy LITERACY Project, Inc. He has been a Distinguished Lecturer for the Society of Petroleum Engineers, speaking on public energy education and policy issues. His 43 years of experience includes in addition to the above activities positions with ARCO, Scientific Software Corp., Martin Marietta and Eastman Kodak.
