Oil jumps on the ICE, as US dollar weakens

17-Feb-10

US Light oil prices edged a little higher in a quiet trading on Monday with NYMEX Light crude oil futures for delivery in March, to US$74.27 dollars, gains capped by China’s latest bid to cool down its booming economy. European debt worries have helped the US dollar make significant gains against Euro, which in turn has blocked oil prices from rising.
