*Financial Times, by Javier Blas, October 26, 2007
“Crude oil prices on Friday breached $92 a barrel to hit a fresh all-time high, driven by low inventories ahead of the winter peak season, fresh geopolitical tension between the US and Iran and the weakness of the US dollar.
Nymex December West Texas Intermediate jumped in London morning trade by $1.76 to an intraday record of $92.22, after rising $3.36 to $90.46 on Thursday. The oil price is up almost 50 per cent since January.
The dollar fell to $1.4336 against the euro, just shy of the record low of $1.4349 struck earlier in the week. Its weakness together with fears of a oil-induced higher inflation helped to boost spot gold to a fresh 28-year high of $775.30 an ounce.”
