I've commented repeated lately that oil prices seem to have a psychological ceiling of $80 this year.  Every time oil starts getting close to $80 or so, it drops back down again. So meanwhile, right on cue, Trump has just pulled out his Twitter sledgehammer again and I presume by tomorrow, oil prices will start dropping again.  Will wait and see. Trump: "The OPEC Monopoly Must Get Prices Down Now!" Less than three months after Trump's latest tweet slamming OPEC, in which he warned the petroleum cartel that "the United States defends many of their members for very little $’s. This must be a two way street. REDUCE PRICING NOW!"... ... Trump was at it again and on Thursday morning, the president lashed out at OPEC, saying that the US protects the countries of the Middle East, and warning these nations that "they would not be safe for very long without us, and yet they continue to push for higher and higher oil prices! We will remember." His message: "The OPEC monopoly must get prices down now!"
