Pumped Back Up


In Business This Week: CLOSING BELL

PUMPED BACK UP

Oil prices' roller-coaster ride isn't over. The U.N. Security Council's offer to allow limited oil sales by Iraq sent crude prices tumbling 5% on Apr. 13. But contracts spurted back up on Apr. 18, after Saddam Hussein snubbed the plan. More upside could be in store.
