Oil jumped as much as 6% on Thursday after Iran shot down a U.S. military drone, prompting President Donald Trump to blast Tehran on Twitter and fueling concerns of a conflict between the two countries.
U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude rose $2.92, or 5.4%, to $56.68 a barrel as of 11:41 a.m. ET, down from a 6% surge around 10 a.m. ET. Brent crude, the global benchmark, was up $2.42 ― a 3.9% increase ― at $64.24 a barrel.
Trump took to Twitter Thursday morning to criticize what U.S. officials say was Iran’s attack on a U.S. surveillance drone earlier in the day, saying that Tehran made a “very big mistake.”
