If you’ve had a bit more concern about the economy and your financial portfolio recently, then you’re far from alone. With ongoing market tumult and surging inflation, it’s reasonable to wonder what the future holds for your finances.

It's been more than four decades since we've seen inflation this bad and many point to an aggressive set of Fed actions on the horizon, including a series of interest rate hikes.

Fortunately, there are ways to help hedge against inflation. Adding commodity exposure to your portfolio can help diversify an existing portfolio of stocks and bonds, and potentially lower risk, while helping to boost return potential—particularly, during periods of rising inflation.

U.S. Ramping Up Oil Production

Oil prices have begun to stagnate just a hair, but they are still high enough to spur lots of production. U.S. oil output is expected to be 12.86 million barrels a day according to East Daley Capital, which is a 23% increase from their December forecast. Most of the increased production will come from shale Fields in the Permian Basin, as elevated prices can sustain drilling and production here. Additionally, supply chains are relatively more lubricated, the Russia-Ukraine conflict looks ongoing, and a massive Covid resurgence seems like a small probability. The Dallas said profits are more than sustainable to continue drilling in the Permian Basin and other shale sites.


Finsum: This increased production could be enough to finally cap the upward moving gas prices, but that effect could take some time.
