Oil slumps on China, Europe worries;dollar gains

Reuters --
Crude oil prices fell sharply on Wednesday as signs of a slowdown in China and Europe stoked worries about petroleum demand, while the dollar rose after better-than-expected news on the U.S. economy.

Wall Street ended modestly higher as better-than-expected U.S. labor and service-sector data fueled optimism about the recovery, but the Dow industrials were hobbled by a slide in Hewlett-Packard .

Don't worry. Oil will go back up because of the crisis in Syria.

With slumps like today we are in trouble!

UP +3.57 per barrel.

Crazy Reuters.

Article is not news - it's a day late and not even fishwrap.

jcurley you are a hoot.....
compare employment numbers (do you know what that is?) the number of workers....
unemployment is just what we are paying people to look for work....
perhaps you should take an economics course....
to find a time when there were less americans in jobs you have to go back to the begining of the Reagan administration... and guess what... we have a lot more eligble workers now than way back then...
the stock market is a reflection of bail outs and stimulus expectations
corporate profits are up because they are scared to hire not knowing tax liabilities and OBAMACARE..
I suppose you feel OBAMA wiped the floor with Romney in the debate last night?

If you here that America is worse off now than four years ago, just compare unemployment numbers, the stock market, corporate profits and executive pay.

The problem is, 4 million new jobs is not enough. If we could get the tea baggers in Congress to actually *DO* something (instead of going on vacation and sabotaging our credit worthiness, we could have created another million or two jobs in this country, which would help the middle class.
