Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I ditched my WSJ subscription which has the NYMEX quotes.  I found another site that had a table out to dec 2011 (people trade calender spreads off Dec usually).  Can't seem to find it again.  IIRC.  Front about 64, then in contango to $65 ish mid next spring then gentle backwardation to about $58 in 6 years time.  Pretty flat on a percentage basis.  I wouldn't trust NYMEX quotes much further out than that.  The locals fool around with the #'s out in the illiquid areas to minimize their margins.  I don't know of any place you can get free OTC quotes.

as for the bet, I'm just pulling on your beard.  One reason I was a very mediocre trader is I have no huge desire to gamble every second of every day.
