Oil Rig

The oil price has reached a three-and-a-half year high and commentators say political tensions could drive it higher still – that means there could be opportunities for brave investors.

Oil this week reached $78 a barrel for the first time since 2014. A fall in supply and geopolitical uncertainties have helped drive the price upwards; US President Donald Trump has pulled out of a deal between Iran and the United Nations Security Council in a move some fear could lead to strict sanctions on imports of oil from the country.
