Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

MORNING Midwest Digest, June 4, 2018

Max Armstrong talks about crude oil prices, drought monitor and new Ikea plans.

Crude oil prices have hit nearly $77/barrel. US oil production continues to climb.

Last week's drought monitor report shows the drought footprint is shrinking lately. However, it may spread in the weeks ahead across the Corn Belt.

A new Ikea story opened in Milwaukee last week, but plans were scrapped in several other locations across the U.S.

Michigan police say a man hit by a car was trying to move a deer carcass to the shoulder.

A graduate was reunited with his father who was on deployment while at graduation. Not a dry eye to have.
