Oil has been going up.
Personally, I think there is way too much speculation going on which is driving up the price of oil. Hedge funds and others are now buying up oil, putting them in tanker ships, and (in my opinion) manipulating the market to drive up the price.
This of course, is just my opinion.
One of my friends is investing in an oil exploration venture. I have a chance to invest, but as I think the price or oil is now artificially high, I won't be investing.
OPEC says they won't be increasing production until oil hits 100.00 a barrel.
I am guessing there will be a lot of volatility in the market in the next few months.
