Crude Futures Rise Following 2nd Greek Bailout

Dow Jones Newswire --
Crude-oil futures rose sharply Tuesday on optimism that the recently passed bailout of Greece will ease the continent's economic woes and boost oil demand.

Euro-zone finance ministers agreed to a EUR130 billion rescue package for Greece after the country adopted a latest round of deep austerity measures. The agreement boosted market sentiment across the board and ended months of uncertainty over whether the country that has been at the center of the euro-zone's sovereign debt crisis would get a second bailout.

Light, sweet crude for March delivery rose $1.41, or 1.4%, to $104.65 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. With the contract due to expire at the close of trading Tuesday, the more heavily traded April contract was up $1.34, or 1.3%, to $104.94 a barrel.

Crude Futures Rise Following 2nd Greek Bailout and the US may not be far behind with *spending gone wild* Barry!
Big oil exports fuel and natural gas to the world for higher profits. Barry supports natural gas and oil production for sale to the world to help pay for his *spending gone wild* addiction. Speculators, manipulators and the banks continue to unfairly and unjustly make the driving public pay higher prices at the pump for their benefit.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money. Consider using ‘other’ forms of transportation to help lower your cost.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Part of me says let it all come crashing down. I see that sentiment echoed here on the forums quite a bit. I just didn't realize that there were so many rough and tumble individuals who could actually survive the ensuing melt down.

Just want to make sure the increase in crude was caused by the 2nd Greek Bailout and not Iran rattling their sabers. Have to keep our excuses straight for when the speculators increase the pice again.

The Greek bailout will cause many other financial woes.......... but is just a preview of what will soon happen to the US Economy unless Obama & the Democrats who spend like drunken liberals are not turned out of office in November 2012!
