We investigate the issues of future oscillations around the phantom divide (FOPD) for f(R) gravity. For this purpose, we introduce two types of energy density and pressure arisen from the f(R)-higher order curvature terms. One has the conventional energy density and pressure even in the beginning of the Jordan frame, whose continuity equation defines the native equation of state w DE. On the other hand, the other has the different energy density and pressure which do not obviously satisfy the continuity equation. This needs to introduce the effective equation of state w eff to describe the f(R)-fluid, in addition to the native equation of state . We show that the FOPD occur in f(R) gravities by introducing two types of equation of state. Finally, we point out that the singularity appears ar x=x c because the stability condition of f(R) gravity violates.
