It will peak -- and the bubble will pop -- as soon as I give up and go all in.

I'd lose my butt but I might become a national hero.

Seriously -- the drop in the dollar can't fully explain oil prices. People are always chasing a bubble somewhere, relying on the Greater Fool Theory and that they can get out with a profit before it blows up in their face.
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)

Where will all these used Suburbans end up? No one will want to buy them. It's unlikely you'll be able to give them away once gas hits the stratosphere. Probably they will end up in the SUV graveyard where they will be mashed to smithereenes and sold for scrap. Woe is the SUV.
