“The danger is that this latest bout of higher oil prices will last longer and have a more detrimental effect on consumer activity
,” said Nomura Securities Chief Economist David Resler.
“Mortgage rates and long-term rates are certainly much higher than the last time we were flirting with $70 a barrel for oil, and that means we’re not going to get the counterweight from low interest rates to ease some of the burden of energy costs,” Resler said.”
