Dubai crude crosses $100 for first time

Seoul: The spot price of Dubai crude oil, South Korea’s benchmark, crossed $100 per barrel for the first time as the US dollar continued to weaken, Korea National Oil said on Saturday.
South Korea, the world’s fifth-largest oil importer, was expected to post a current account deficit of some $7 billion due to higher prices of oil and other raw materials.
