Eighty-Six Dollar Oil

Oil was up two and a half bucks to $86.13 today, yet another record close. The big jump was attributed to Kurdistan-related tensions between Turkey and Iraq. So take consolation in the hope that if we can get the Turks to calm down, oil prices will slip to a more sane level in the low eighties. Oh, wait. I forgot. Oil had already been on a robust record setting clip, so the underlying trend was strongly up in any case. And the Turks probably won't calm down. Never mind.
