Oil price rises after OPEC cuts output

Oil prices rose today after OPEC said it would cut more than 500,000 barrels a day of production that exceed its self-imposed output quotas.

Oil price falls to below $100 per barrel

The price of oil plunged closer to the psychologically important level of $100 per barrel yesterday, raising the prospect of lower inflation and lower interest rates next year.

Oil price fall raises prospect of return to $100 a barrel

As Hurricane Gustav, downgraded to a tropical storm, spent its force inland yesterday, the oil price dropped to a five-month low and raised the prospect of falling back below $100 a barrel.

Oil price falls to $113 on expected fall in demand

A rapidly cooling global economy and an increase in supply from Opec nations will see the price of oil ease next year.

BP chief blames states, not speculators, for record oil prices

The oil price touched yet another new high yesterday, serving as a dramatic backdrop for the second meeting of the industry's top figures in two weeks as they desperately look for a solution to a problem that is sending deep reverberations throughout the world economy.

Oil price near new high of $140 despite Saudi pledge on production

The price of oil surged to a record new high yesterday of nearly $140 a barrel. Traders shrugged off a pledge from King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia to increase production as the weak dollar spurred investors to make further moves into crude.

Saudi King: 'We will pump more oil'

Saudi Arabia will raise oil production to record levels within weeks in an attempt to avert an escalation of social and political unrest around the world. King Abdullah signalled the commitment to the UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, at the weekend after the impact of skyrocketing oil prices on food sparked protests and riots from Spain to South Korea.

Motorists warned not to panic

Motorists were last night urged not to panic buy after fuel-lorry drivers threatened a four-day strike over pay. There are fears of shortages at Shell forecourts after drivers employed by two firms used by the company rejected a 6.8 per cent pay offer.

Brown under fire on fuel as Nigeria attack lifts oil price

Gordon Brown will face renewed pressure this week to suspend the fuel duty rise due to come into force in October as an attack on an oil pipeline in Nigeria yesterday pushed up crude prices yet again.

Dominic Lawson: Mr Brown can try to blame this crisis on Opec, but the real fault lies with his own tax policy

The British Government has two policies on oil prices. The first is that the price we pay for oil is too high, and must be brought down. The second is that the price we pay for oil is too low, and must be increased.

Oil price close to record high as output rise has little effect

The world's largest oil producer bowed to pressure from its biggest customer, America, and agreed to pump more oil, but the market has taken no solace.

Private Investor: Seduced by the romance of black gold

Let's face it, there is something magnificently romantic about oil and the search for it. You can see that in the recent film There Will Be Blood, and you can sense it in the excitement that greets the price pushing through successive landmarks. At the beginning of the year $100 was breached – wow! But almost as soon as we had got used to that disconcerting notion, along comes the $120 and $125 barrel. The president of Opec says he sees it hitting $200 before long. Even as it stands now, oil has quadrupled in four years. It is difficult to believe that it was worth $10 a barrel only 10 years ago.

Brown tackles 'rumour and gossip'

Gordon Brown today insisted he was the right person to guide Britain through difficult economic times, as he continued his effort to reassert his authority in the wake of the worst weeks of his premiership.
