Back in the 90s, when I began trading some 25 years ago, everybody knew it was all about the oil. Books written by famous investors said things like, “It’s all about the oil, stupid!”

Uptrending Oil

The price of oil was already on the rise before the Russia Ukraine war. The Biden Administration made it a priority to cut the Keystone pipeline, which reduced the domestic flow of oil. Hundreds of smaller channels were shut down by the Biden Administration as the supply of oil was reduced. At the same time, the oil demand increased on the reopening of small businesses after lockdowns.

The Price of Oil

Wtic

When the Russia Ukraine war started last week, oil prices increased even higher.

The rise in oil prices is a HUGE negative for the US economy. Americans were already squeezed from rising prices at the pump AND on their utility bills BEFORE fighting started between Russia and Ukraine. The most recent surge in the price of oil should prompt the Biden Administration to open the nation’s strategic oil reserves immediately. A lot more pressure needs to be put on OPEC to increase oil production immediately. Time is of the essence as consumers were already reducing their consumption due to rising inflation and interest rates. Brent oil is currently trading at $118, and WTIC is at $115 as of March 6, 2022. Unless something isn’t done quickly to reduce the price of oil back below $90 a barrel, the US economy is headed rapidly towards another Recession. No wonder institutional investors continue to sell-the-rip.

Three Popular Energy Stocks

The upward spike in the price of oil is causing lower liquidity energy stocks to soar. Below are three popular energy stocks that are flying higher.
