Up, up, up with a fish!
US crude oil futures hit another all-time intraday high on Friday at $41.50 a barrel, before falling back again.

The oil price has been pushed to record levels this week due to growing concerns that the US is facing a very tight gasoline market during the busy summer driving season.
