LONDON: Oil began 2010 with a bang on Monday, jumping above $81 on expectations of higher energy demand in the northern hemisphere winter and after Russia cut supplies to Belarus, traders said. New York s main futures contract, light sweet crude for delivery in February, spiked to $81.68 per barrel. It later stood at $81.25, up $1.89.
