Industry analysts said that the recent rise in fuel prices may be an early signal of the possibility of gasoline and heating oil prices staying higher than usually through the end of the year.

(A) of the possibility of gasoline and heating oil prices staying higher than usually through --> "may be" & "possibility" together are redundant
(B) of the possibility that gasoline and heating oil prices could stay higher than usual throughout --> same as A
(C) of prices of gasoline and heating oil possibly staying higher than usually through --> same as A
(D) that prices of gasoline and heating oil could stay higher than they usually are throughout --> "may be" & "could" together are redundant
(E) that prices of gasoline and heating oil will stay higher than usual through --> correct

Through the end of the year means from now until the end of the year, period by period or event by event. As we are in June now, through the end means the rest of June, the entire of July, August, September, and so on until the last day of December. On the contrary, throughout the end of the year doesn't convey any sensible meaning except to refer to the last of the year. The end of the year marks a particular short point of time. There no meaning in saying throughout that the short period.
Through means from one point to another. Throughout means entirely



Could you please give us a correct example of the use of throughout?

two things to look for

1)throughout and through.
throughout doesn't make sense in this sentence hence B,D are out
2)redundancy of words may+possibility & may+could
hence A,C out.

Ans is E
