Crude oil breaches $100 per barrel

Oil breached $100 a barrel for the first time since 2014 on Thursday after Russia initiated military action against Ukraine, sparking concerns that a war in Europe could disrupt global energy supplies.

Brent crude hit a high of $101.34 a barrel in early Asia trade, the loftiest since September 2014, and was at $101.20 a barrel at 0423 GMT, up $4.36, or 4.5%.

Indian Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman, had recently said that crude prices and disruption of supply chain were a worry and that the government is keeping a close eye on the developments.
