The late-2005 call by Steve Forbes that we'd see oil at $35 a barrel has finally been proven correct - it's too bad he said it would happen within a year.
That call looked pretty bad for more than three years and a fair number of barbs were cast in his direction, during which time, even his closest friends probably chided him.

He'd be better advised to either not specify a time frame this go-round or to be just vague enough to be able to claim clairvoyance should he get the price right and the timing wrong once again.
