"Sort of like house prices. For a long time people bought homes because if you didn't buy today, six months from now that house is going to cost you more."

"Traders and speculators, and money flows, can move the price of anything, especially energy, in a 24 hour time period ... In the long run, supply and demand and perception are what reality is going to be in the future and really dictate price," he explained.
