This graph shows WTI and Brent spot oil prices from the EIA. (Prices today added).  According to Bloomberg, WTI is at $37.84 per barrel today, and Brent is at $40.84

Prices really collapsed at the end of 2014 - and then rebounded a little - and then collapsed again.

This puts the recent price increase into perspective!
