Oil prices take over a year to feed through into general inflation and economy. 2008 is Oil crunch time with prices 50% up on last year.

Oil prices will swamp subprime as market driver

Here's my fearless forecast for 2008: The subprime mortgage mess will be far less important to investors next year than the price of oil. The reason is simple: We don't sell our homes once a week, but that's about how often we fill up our gas tanks.

    Wrong. As house prices fall, more and more homeowners will abandon their homes. This means that ordinary mortgages, well above sub-prime, will become worthless. The credit crunch will get worse. Although houses are infrequently sold, every day a homeowner can experience the decline in equity known as the wealth effect.
