Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Is it that oil is gaining value, or is it that the dollar is losing value?

How does oil look against (say) sterling, the Euro and the Kuwaiti Dinar?

Although the US$ is parting ways from other major currencies, the difference is small against oil price variations.

Remember that oil was below 50$ in the beginning of the year and now is nighing on 80$. The currency variations have much lower amplitude. That's almost a 60% increase.
