NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The crude market has been moving up, or at least the price for U.S. crude has been moving up, now looking ever more likely to reach $100 a barrel again soon. That price increase is going to benefit some domestic producers of crude, notably Anadarko Petroleum (APC - Get Report).The benchmark price for crude around the rest of the globe, represented by the price of Brent crude, has been relatively steady for most of the year so far -- but not so our domestic benchmark represented by West Texas Intermediate crude, which has moved from under $90 a barrel in February to close to $95 a barrel today. Because of this, the key WTI/Brent spread has moved under a $15 premium, still historically wide, but closer than they have been in two years.
