Tropical Storm Barry Approaches Louisiana - 3 Things to Know About Oil Prices

Tropical Storm Barry is approaching Louisiana, threatening to decimate a large chunk of the U.S. oil supply.

Brent crude oil prices rose 0.26% Friday, to $66.78 a barrel.

Here's what oil investors need to watch: Chevron , Exxon Mobil , British Petrolium and Royal Dutch Shell all evacuated staff from rigs in the gulf area.

The gulf area represents roughly 20% of all U.S. oil output, so a huge chunk of supply is threatened, bringing the price of oil up.

The International Energy Agency said oil demand growth will remain a key area of focus.

The agency mentions that as global manufacturing output has declined, an issue Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell flagged in his hearing with Congress.
