Actually, oil prices aren't that extreme if you go all the way back to the 1800s

"Nevertheless," Reid adds, "in this year's long-term study if prices stay at similar levels it will be the first time our long-term mean reversion exercise will show positive return expectations for oil since we first started it over a decade ago.""Although we don't claim to be experts on oil markets our long held belief is that commodities that are factors of production are unlikely to outstrip inflation over the long-term as if they do there will be alternatives found. Clearly this can take years if not decades to resolve so even if we're correct commodity cycles can still last a long time before they eventually mean revert."
