With the recession trailing off slowly and the economy finding its way back to a livable way we look to another contributing factor, oil.

Oil prices rose on Thursday, bringing the cost up to $79 a barrel once data was received on US economy growth. In Europe, bench mark crude delivery had jumped to $1.51 to $78.97 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract fell by $2.09 making the settling price $77.46 on Wednesday.

Also on Wednesday gasoline stocks rose to 1.7 million barrels according to the Energy Information Administration, crude supplies also rose to 900,000 barrels last week. Crude supplies since last week has retreated to $82 a barrel which is a high for 2009. The US dollar gained backs some of its losses from recent months.

Commodities are priced in dollars so they become more expensive making them not as intriguing to international investors when the US currency rises. The Euro rose from $1.4714 to $1.4799 on Thursday while the dollar gained 91.24 yen from 90.64.

Gas prices are rising back up and have been over the period of the past two weeks. The average price for a gallon of gas is less than a penny below highs reached during the driving season.

Gas prices have fluctuated many times over this recession. At one point they were up as high as $5 a gallon in some places while other places were running out of gas based on people trying to get the cheapest gas. So now it should be no shock to anyone they are once again going up. However, this does make it that much harder for those who are unemployed and trying to look for a job. For the most part to find a job people have to get out there in the world and look for one which costs gas. So if it's not one thing it's another when it comes to the economy.
