Oil Prices Rise After Turkey Shoots Down Russian Jet Fighter
By Nicole Friedman
Oil prices climbed Tuesday on fears of a supply disruption after the Turkish military shot down a Russian jet fighter along the Syrian border.
The benchmark U.S. crude-oil price soared more than 4% during intraday trading in the hours following the first reports of the fighter-plane incident, which escalated tensions between Russia and Turkey. Oil later pared gains.
The rise illustrates how geopolitical risks can still rattle the oil market even as it remains mired in a supply glut that shows few signs of receding.
January crude closed $1.12, or 2.7%, higher to $42.87 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Brent, the global benchmark, rose 2.9% to $46.12 a barrel on ICE Futures Europe. Both contracts are at two-week highs.
