Oil Prices Up Again, Pass $105 per Barrel

The price of crude oil rose again on Tuesday, going up by 2.5% to $105.84 per barrel in trading in New York. The price is the highest in several months.

The price of oil has been driven up by recent international developments, including Iran’s threat to stop selling oil to several European countries.
