Crude Oil = $100

A quick note on Oil futures in the US: They are showing $96 on mideastern unrest. In the Us, rising gas prices, and increasing airfares are yet another economic headwind to deal with.

I assume that the middling US economy can absorb a few weeks or even months of elevated fuel prices in its current vulnerable state, but if fuel prices remain high for ore than a few months, it spells trouble.
