Fuel Price Index [04.12.2018]Prices are higher today, but not because of the report. When POTUS Tweets plans for a missile attack in the Mid-East (wow, has the world changed!), the energy market doesn’t know what do you BUT jump. Crude prices are at their highs since late 2014, and market volatility is increasing, as well.
Considering how quickly (temporarily?) trade-war talk with China ebbed, we hope that this “warning” from the U.S. will lead to cooler heads, both in Russia and in Syria. However, in no civilized planet should we allow any government to use chemical or gas weapons on their citizens – regardless of their political opinions!
