Cramer/Dicker: Ukraine And Ebola Are Why Oil is Headed Higher

TheStreet

Dan Dicker, TheStreet senior energy contributor talks with Jim Cramer about the two deepest risks to the oil market. One, the continuing tensions in Ukraine, are getting widespread news coverage and continuing concern. The other, the spread of Ebola in Western Africa, is hardly being considered at all. But with 2.6 million barrels of oil produced by Nigeria, a catastrophic outbreak in the Niger Delta could bring production to a fast and screeching halt – which could make oil prices increase $10 or more a barrel.
