Bolton departure from White House sends oil tumbling

The resignation/firing of John Bolton, a long-time advocate of military action against Iran, as National Security Advisor to President Donald Trump, has send oil prices tumbling today. U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate is down 2.42% to $56.01 a barrel. International benchmark Brent crude is off 2.20% to $61.01 a barrel. The theory behind the price drop is that Bolton's departure lessens the odds that the United States will bomb Iran tomorrow and increases the odds that President Trump will restart talks with Iran
