Brent crude, the main European contract, was down 46 cents to $111.68 a barrel.
The benchmark U.S. oil contract, West Texas Intermediate, for April delivery was up 13 cents to $98.01 a barrel.
My Note –
But, the prices based on “higher fuel costs” are up for things from pump prices to airline tickets – none of which have purchased any oil at these prices yet now at the slightly higher prices where they were three days ago. Figures.
