    Thumbs down Oil climbs above $88/barrel

    From: Marketwatch
    SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Crude-oil futures rocketed briefly past $88 a barrel Tuesday for the first time as mounting concerns over a possible Turkish attack on Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq and tight U.S. crude supplies heading into the winter kept strong upward pressure on energy prices.

    Oil costs a bunch, but refineries are making record profits too. There's money to be made all over, that's for sure.

    At $88 per barrel it shouldn't be long before we get jammed at the pumps again. Oh well, I don't commute in my own vehicle....

    Yeah, and it's sad becasue guess who is taking the hit.... Charity- recently I have read donations are down everywhere. It's really unfortunate that the oil folks are so greedy.

    High oil prices suck. It's just oil! Can't cost more than $2.50 / barrell to get it out of the ground.
