The strife in Iraq is having an impact on what you pay for gasoline in Tulsa and on your 401(k). The price of regular unleaded gasoline increased 16-cents per gallon in Tulsa today. Most stations increased their price to $3.44 per gallon.

The main stock indexes are having trouble finding direction today. The crisis in Iraq and its impact on global oil prices have been weighing on the market, while a batch of corporate merger news has provided a boost. Traders also have been bidding up homebuilder shares following a report showing a sharp improvement in builders' confidence in the housing market. The Dow, S&P 500 and the Nasdaq have all been wavering between small gains and losses.
