The Energy Information Administration reported Wednesday that average oil demand increased last week in the U.S. for the third week in a row. The escalating conflict in Syria and renewed tensions between Iran and Israel are also contributing to

Folks, oil is a commodity, just like corn (going up too), wheat (up), etc. It's not much different than the stock market, which tends to change on whims and speculation. Count your blessings for the low period. Given the state of our economy, there's no reason to expect a huge demand (price) boost any time soon. But then again, events in the middle east may be perceived as threats to supply and increase oil prices anyway. Does this seem like Las Vegas?
