Entries for the 2008 edition of the "Guess the Year-End Price of Oil and Gold" contest have been tabulated and they now appear in the chart and tables below.
There were a total of 89 entries (down from 111 entries in June) with average guesses of $81 for a barrel of oil and $918 for an ounce of gold (this compares to average guesses of $119 and $997 for the last contest).
For oil, the high/low range was $200/$40 and, for gold, the range was $2,100/$600.
All individual guesses appear in the tables below - if something looks amiss, please let me know (this is a manual process, prone to error). All entries received via email use the sender's initials unless directed otherwise - you should be able locate your guess based on when and how it was made:
