(U.S. Edition) As we focus on a host of important issues including health care, tax reform and disaster recovery, there’s another news item you shouldn’t miss: higher crude oil prices. We’ll look at what’s going on behind the scenes of its production, and how these prices are being affected by threats from Turkish authorities to cut off certain pipelines.
