Somewhat forgotten in the dramatic events that triggered this recession 
is the gas spike of 2007/8. Have any of you on this list run across an 
authoritative explanation of why this happened?

The two major explanations are speculation and demand, but I haven't 
seen any source that does a good job of analyzing their relative 
contributions.
