White House says oil prices "too high"
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Wednesday oil prices are too high, as U.S. crude closed in on the landmark $100 level.
"Oil prices are too high," said spokeswoman Dana Perino. Oil sped above $98 a barrel for the first time on Wednesday, driven by a slumping dollar and worries over a winter fuel supply crunch.
