Oil prices soar after U.S. launches missile strike in Syria

Ah, then came the dawn. Oil prices soar after U.S. launches missile strike in Syria | 07 April 2017 | Oil prices surged more than 2 percent to a one-month high on Friday after the United States launched dozens of cruise missiles at an airbase in Syria, later dropping back as there seemed no immediate threat to supplies. U.S. President Donald Trump said he had ordered missile strikes against a Syrian airfield from which a deadly chemical weapons attack was launched earlier this week, declaring he acted in America's "national security interest" against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. After tepid trading before the attack, international benchmark Brent crude futures LCOc1 jumped to $56.08 per barrel before easing to $55.71 per barrel at 0519 GMT, still up 1.5 percent from its last close.
