There's one very simple reason why - and it has nothing to do with an oil production freeze...

Saudi Arabia Threatens to Crash U.S. Markets

President Obama's trip to the Saudi capital of Riyadh this week comes at an awkward time.

That's because Saudi Arabia sent a warning to the U.S. as Congress tries to pass a bill that would hold the Saudi government responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks.

And this threat targets the heart of the U.S. economy...

The oil patch is abuzz with rumor and speculation concerning the April 17 meeting of OPEC and non-OPEC oil-producing nations in Doha, Qatar.

The price of crude oil is finally back above $40 thanks to one report last week that indicates supply is falling.
