Oil to $143

Oil above $143 this morning as the dollar weakens further and an Iranian general threatens to choke off the Strait of Hormuz:

In a report published Saturday in the conservative Jam-e-Jam newspaper, Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari said that if Iran were provoked, it would also move to control a key oil passageway in the Gulf.

Iran is the world’s fourth-largest oil exporter and about 60 per cent of the world’s oil passes through the strategic Strait of Hormuz.
