Unfortunately most of this type of forecasting seems to be a combination of extrapolation and guesswork. It is not unsurprising, considering the financial and political factors that affect oil prices and similar. One possibility for oil prices is that Saudi Arabia will cut production to raise prices. When they do that will depend on a lot of factors. One major one will be that it will generate higher incomes for countries that they aren't on friendly terms with. So who knows when or by how much.
