Markets react to Russia seizing nuclear plant

The markets reacted overnight to Russia seizing a Ukrainian nuclear plant, the largest in Europe.

A fire that broke out did not reach any reactors, but it was intense while waiting to learn if radiation had escaped. Russia now controls the plant.

At one point in the overnight trade, oil reached $114 dollars a barrel. Analysts warn Americans should prepare for $5 dollar a gallon gas, very soon.
