Oil prices slip as US inventory rise offsets geopolitical jitters

That was the headline from AFP at 12.54pm on 17 October 2007.

But this was the headline from AFP at 10.11 am on 17 October 2007.
Oil hits record 89 dollars on sizzling MidEast tensions

Yes, prices fluctuate throughout the day, but why bother reporting until the end of the trading day? Its a fucking waste of ink and bandwidth.

Update: This just in from AFP as of 1.43am 18 October 2007:
Oil prices firm after striking record 89 dollars

Now that's the only report that should have been filed.
