Oil prices skyrocket after top Iranian general killed by US airstrike

Crude oil prices skyrocketed and U.S. stock market futures fell on Thursday night following news that a top Iranian general and an Iraqi militia’s deputy commander were killed in a U.S. airstrike at Baghdad’s airport. Brent crude futures jumped close to $3 on Friday to their highest since September, raising concerns that escalating Middle East tensions may disrupt oil supplies.

Oil price surge only reflects the speculation driven profiteering that the elite have been doing for years.

It's pure speculation. The oil companies are always quick to gouge the consumer, no matter the pretense. Something might happen! Raise prices because profit is King.
