OIl Prices on The Rise Again

BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) -- Oil prices have surged above $143 a barrel for the first time ever today.
Light, sweet crude for August delivery rose $3.46 to $143.67 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange, by midday in Europe.
On Friday, oil spiked to $142.99 a barrel in New York, though it closed at $140.21.
Expectations of a weaker dollar have investors turning towards dollar-denominated oil futures as a hedge against inflation.
