Oil prices rose a fourth day on Friday on hopes for more stimulus from the U.S. Federal Reserve

Fox Business -- Brent September crude rose $1.21 to settle at $106.47 a barrel, posting a 36-cent loss for the week after four straight weekly gains. The premium to October Brent stayed above $1 a barrel.

U.S. September crude gained 74 cents to settle at $90.13 a barrel, ending with a 1.43 percent weekly loss after gaining the previous two weeks.

But both contracts stayed on track to register healthy monthly gains next week, after both Brent and U.S. crude suffered double-digit tumbles in the second quarter.

"Oil up fourth day as stimulus hopes support

Reuters -- Oil prices rose a fourth day on Friday on hopes for more stimulus from the U.S. Federal Reserve after data showed U.S. economic growth slowed in the second quarter as expected.

Dollar-denominated crude futures saw choppy trading as the euro and dollar .DXY also seesawed, buffeted by comments from European leaders.

The euro hit a three-week high, lifted early after French leader Francois Hollande and his German counterpart, Angela Merkel, said they are determined to do all they can to safeguard the single currency.

The euro hit the session high on a report that European Central Bank President Mario Draghi would favor giving the bailout fund a banking license and would meet with German's Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann. (go to article)

prices have been weird here. Some stations are still climbing up to $3.45/Gal; while a few, which may buy more from American oil producers, have dropped back down a few pennies to $3.26/Gal.

From what I remember, the Fed has done about all it can. The discount rate is getting close to zero.

We better raise the price at the pump; the Olympics have begun, no doubt this will also have a negative effect on crude and gasoline futures; everything else does!
For some just to let you know I'm being facetiousness!
