oil above $60 won't continue as supply, demand will drag prices back to earth


3:32 PM ET Fri, 19 Jan 2018 | 01:42 Crude oil hit its highest level in more than three years to start 2018, but one market watcher expects these gains to be short-lived.

Crude has surged 133 percent since hitting a multi-year low of $27.30 a barrel in February 2016. However, market conditions do not currently support crude oil above $60 a barrel, says John Kilduff , pa,

Why, Landon? – The Georgetown Voice


By: Jorge DeNeve 01/19/2018 Brett Favre came out of retirement twice. And when he retired the third time, I wondered if it was truly for good or whether he was just hoping his teammates and the media would come running to his little house in Mississippi to coax him back onto the football field. However, once he was out of the game for a season, no one questioned whether he would come back again. He was too far out of practice, not used to reading defenses, and most importantly, not physically fit enough for the rigors of the NFL. Michael Jordan also came out of retirement twice, though the fir,
