Oil is trading back over the $80 level as the US Dollar remained stable, and the US's better than expected revised GDP numbers on Friday helped build confidence. Further bullish news from Europe with regards to a stable jobs market has given market bulls reason to believe that the economic recovery will not pull back, and demand will not wane.
