Everyday Americans are getting hammered by high prices at the pump, and Bank of America thinks the pain may just be getting started.

 

Gas prices have surged to a seven-year high of $3.40 a gallon nationally and are flirting with $4 in Nevada, Washington State and Oregon.

 

Bank of America is now predicting that Brent crude oil, which drives gas prices, will zoom to $120 a barrel by June 2022. That's 45% higher than current levels.

"It's very easy for prices to shoot up when demand conditions are tight like they are now," Francisco Blanch, Bank of America's head of global commodities, told CNN.

 

Blanch has been an outspoken oil bull, predicting in June that crude would eventually surge to $100 a barrel.

"Back then, people thought we were crazy. Now, here we are," Blanch said. "We are generally still quite bullish."
