Ken's Naperville Real Estate Blog

Is anyone watching oil prices?

Holy smokes.  Oil prices were up $5 today! 

I read an article the other day that it had just passed it's inflation adjusted high from 1980.  It would seem gas prices will spike this summer at more than $4 per gallon.  Ouch.

Yet another challenge to the pocket books of struggling realtors.  That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger, I guess. 

I hope all is well,

Ken
