there are two very conflicting headlines today and they came back to back...
the first was

May 5 (Bloomberg) -- Crude oil fell below $80 a barrel in New York as the euro dropped against the dollar on concern that Greece’s bailout may have to be extended to other indebted nations.

Oil slipped as much as 4.3 percent as the common currency tumbled to its lowest level against the dollar since March 2009, curbing the appeal of commodities to investors. An Energy Department report today will probably show that U.S. stockpiles of crude rose 1 million barrels last week, based on the median of estimates from 16 analysts surveyed by Bloomberg News.
