Oil Tops $111 a Barrel, Gas Prices Back Over $4.27 Nationally

Oil prices rose over $111 a barrel Friday as Europe marches off the fossil fuel cliff in an embargo of Russian oil.

Germany specifically receives about a third of its oil from Russia. Turning off the spigot does not mean EU countries will seek alternative energy sources. It merely means they will go elsewhere for oil.

Some industry analysts anticipate the continued Russian sanctions will create a 15-20% reduction in oil supply this year, sending oil prices over $120 a barrel.
