Oil prices hit 4-year high on geopolitical uncertainty

Crude oil prices are peaking again with geopolitical uncertainty at the epicentre of future expectations.

Both WTI and Brent crude prices reached 4-year highs this week despite an 8-million-barrel increase in US stockpiles and set against a backdrop of continually stronger US oil production over the past decade, otherwise known as the ‘shale boom’.
