Oil prices rise amid fears market could hit $105 mark

Oil prices climbed higher today, sticking stubbornly above the $55 a barrel mark, supported by a forecast that the market could spike as high as $105.

Goldman Sachs warned yesterday that the oil markets might have entered the early stages of a “super spike” period, which could drive prices toward $105.
