A new cycle of rising energy prices has begun. Last week's $3-a-barrel boost by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries will be followed by another hike next year.

The Arab League's Israel Boycott Office on Thursday renewed a 20-year-old ban on drinking Coca-Cola in the Arab world. A statement issued in Damascus by the office at the end of a six-day review of its boycott list reiterated the ban on Coca-Cola "for providing economical aid to Israel." The boycott remained in place despite anticipation by some Arab countries that the office might lift the ban.
