Brent rallied to £78.48 a barrel, passing the previous all-time high of £77.71 a barrel set in April last year at the peak of the Libyan civil war supply disruption. In euro terms, the oil benchmark reached a three-year high of €92.70 a barrel, a fraction below the peak of €93.50 a barrel set in July 2008.

My guess is that the PPT (Plunge Protection Team) would first shelve out a good amount of paper oil. Then people would call it, and the price would explode. $150-$200 no problem, on a knee-jerk reaction. After that one would have to see what the real impact is, but it could serve as a nice trigger for stubbornly high post-peak prices that will never go away again.

Where's my $20 oil gone? Deflationistas? Anti-peakers?

$124. Can anyone enlighten me as to why there is such a disparity between US light and Brent Crude and why one may move significantly whilst the other stands still? Who is buying and why are the dynamics different in the two markets? Thanks

Canadian oil sands and Dakota. Apparently the arbitrage does not work between WTI and Brent (due to transportation issues?). Iran therefore mostly impacts Brent. Disclosure: my oil calls are Brent only.

This is what is holding up the oil price:
http://www.veteranst...l-busted-again/

Then the Ukrainians said that there was a “deal” cut between parties in Iran and parties in Israel to “pretend to have a war,” just like in the story above, you remember, the one about the 1973 War.

The deal was, Israel would buy “oil futures.” Oil was cheap, currencies were collapsing, markets going down and, if for some reason, oil went up, Israel would make billions.

So would Iran.

So, if you wonder why you hear endless implausible stories about bombings and threats while everyone seems to be laughing themselves all the way to the bank, you are beginning to understand.

Not just that, Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, the UAE, Kuwait and others are raking in the bucks also.

Now it's all starting to make sense. And if we see any bombs falling, it'll be just as fake as the moon landing.

Governements want to tell you the truth

My gut instinct is to not let the G20 anywhere near this.

I get images of Winston Smith waking up to hear oil prices down. Then wondering is his new found confidence misguided? What role did the government play in bringing him this news?

Scary
