Crude Oil’s down another $5 per barrel so far today, which puts it about $32 below the high set last month. How low will it go?

A Look at the U.S. Dollar

Monday, July 7th, 2008

Take a look at the chart of the five-year history of the U.S. Dollar’s relationship with the Euro: Back in August 2003, one U.S. Dollar purchased .9184 Euros.
