Crude oil for July delivery CLN3 -0.02% on Monday dipped 8 cents to settle at $97.77 a barrel, after spending most of the day showing a gain on concerns about the rising tensions in Syria. The contract appeared to erase its gain after the Financial Times reported that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke plans to disclose he is "close to tapering down its $85 billion-a-month in asset purchases when he holds a press conference on Wednesday."

One would think that the other Middle Eastern countries would want the Syrian unrest settled as quickly as possible and any leader willing to use chemical weapons on fellow countrymen needs to be removed.

The lower the cost per gallon results in less influence to invest in renewable energy solutions. Adversely, the higher the cost per barrel allows for investment in solar, for example. Summary: invest in oil around 95 per barrel. Invest in alternative energy at 112.
