David Rewcastle, an energy analyst with decades of experience working in finance, was
recently featured in the online research publication, Company InFocus.
Company InFocus is a data research firm that recently conducted a survey on the current
energy prices compared to the 2008 financial crisis. One of the executives surveyed, David
Rewcastle shared his thoughts.
In his feature, Rewcastle discussed his work, commitment, and experiences as an energy
analyst at financial firms as his philosophy on the current energy prices. He also shared
valuable advice for those who are looking to enter the field of financial analysis.
Rewcastle stated, “I am confident that the fed has the conviction necessary to do what is
needed to bring down inflation.” “But I will be open with you: I believe they must do less. The fed
will only be capable of doing less if there is more supply.”
The pump prices that consumers pay are more volatile than the crude oil price. U.S. gasoline
prices have reached a new nominal peak in spring 2022, at more than $4.00 per gallon.
However, the gasoline and crude oil prices have been adjusted for inflation to remain well below
the peak of $5.00 per gallon in 2008.
Rewcastle stated that there are short-term solutions to lower energy prices. The U.S. will likely
have to bear more of the burden through monetary policy when bringing down demand.
