Global oil prices on Friday hit $69.16 per barrel, as the United States killed top Iranian General, which may brew conflict in the oil rich Middle East nation.

Prices jumped nearly $3, as the US conducted an airstrike at the Baghdad Airport early on Friday, killing Major-General Qassem Soleimani, who was reportedly the architect of Iran’s spreading military influence in the Middle East.
