WASHINGTON: Rising oil prices just passed another milestone, jumping above USD 70 per barrel on Monday for the first time since November 2014.

Oil prices have been climbing partly because of expectations that US President Donald Trump will abandon the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which allowed Tehran to export more crude, reports CNN.
