Brent crude prices reach highest level since late 2014

Brent crude oil topped $80 a barrel for the first time since November 2014, as the market grew concerned that the Trump administration's effort to sanction Iran's crude exports could be more successful than originally thought.
 
Brent, the international benchmark for oil prices, hit a session high then eased back to $79.42, still up 14 cents.
 
U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude fell 24 cents to $71.25 a barrel.
