The BBC reports Yet Another Record Oil Price figure:
Oil price hits $113. 93 a barrel
The price of oil has hit a new record as problems with a US pipeline underscored concerns about supplies.
US light, sweet crude oil rose to $113.66 a barrel, a fresh peak, before falling back. Brent crude hit $111.85 a barrel in London, also a new record.
This is affecting transport, food and the cost of iving generally.
What exactly are Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Chancellor of thee Exchequer Alastair Darling doing about this then ? Their silence is deafening.
