In this Quarterly Letter, Mr. Grantham offers a correction to widely reported comments attributed to him, that he recently predicted that the natural gas price will triple in five years to $12:

"Correction: Natural Gas Forecast

I am bullish about the longer-term price of natural gas and in my personal account I am long the futures several years out. At five years out, the implied price is $4.50 mcf. However, in the Q&A section of a talk I gave recently I was quoted as saying that in five years the price "would have tripled." This implies a price, then of $12. This is either a misquote or a misspeak. What I intended to say and have said before was that from the low last year the price would be likely to triple in 5 years: that is to about $6 or $7 mcf, far above the assumed $4.50 then, but far below the number in the quote."

LwC -- very interesting. Thanks for pointing this out. The figure of $12 was never plausible or ever supported with a rationale. $6 is in line with the predictions from Wilbur Ross who of course is involved heavily in nat gas.
