Oil prices rebound amid Mideast anxiety
07/18/2006
Oil prices rebounded Tuesday after a steep drop the previous day as continued fighting in the Mideast added jitters to a market already edgy about tight supplies. Escalating fighting between Israel and militants in Lebanon has no direct effect on oil supplies, but has sparked worries that Iran, a financial backer of Hezbollah and OPEC's No. 2 supplier, could be drawn into the conflict. Light, sweet crude for August delivery rose 37 cents to US $75.67 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange by midday in Europe.
