Here is $/barrel over the past 5 years:

5 yrs ago - $25 / barrel
4 yrs ago - $40 / barrel
3 yrs ago - $60 / barrel
2 yrs ago - $75 / barrel
1 yr ago - $75 / barrel
today - $120 / barrel

As you can see, oil prices went up 500% in the past 5 years. In the past year, they went up 200%

According to this exponential growth model, we should reach $200/barrel sometime next year. I'll be conservative and set my own personal estimate in 2010.
