  • 01/03/2011 -- Oil price strengthened in 2010

  • 01/10/2011 -- Oil at $100/bbl would harm economy

  • 01/17/2011 -- Brent nears $100/bbl
    On Jan. 12, the benchmark February crude contract increased 0.8% to a 2-year high of $91.86/bbl on the New York Mercantile Exchange, while in London, North Sea Brent crude came within $2 of $100/bbl oil, which hadn’t been seen since October 2008.
  • 01/24/2011 -- US should reduce distillate stocks

    After waffling all week, the March contract for West Texas Intermediate shot up $3.70 to $89.34/bbl Jan. 28 on the New York Mercantile Exchange as civil unrest in Egypt put Wall Street in a panic.
  • 02/07/2011 -- Weaker payroll data lower oil prices

  • 02/21/2011 -- Volt vehicle lags on green list
    In another indication that Chevrolet’s hybrid-electric Volt might become the next Edsel-size automotive disaster, the car barely placed in the recent American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy’s (ACEEE) annual Green Book ratings of the most environmental friendly vehicles, coming in last at unlucky 13.
  • 02/28/2011 -- Libyan fight favors refiners
    In the last full week of February, front-month crude posted the largest weekly gain in 2 years in the New York market as turmoil in Libya shut in 850,000 b/d of crude production.
  • 03/07/2011 -- MENA strife lifts crude to 2-year high
    Fighting in Libya and general unrest in the Middle East and North Africa sent the price of crude above $102/bbl Mar. 2 in the New York market—“the first time in more than 2 years” the front-month contract closed above $100/bbl, said analysts in the Houston office of Raymond James & Associates Inc.
