 Let's look at the finances, Australia's dollar keeps on climbing and overseas tourists sadly though are staying away. The currency has hit a 29-year high to peak just above 107 US cents. Now it's terrific for those of us travelling abroad but not so good for those manufacturers that rely on exports for their income. Tourism operators are also worried the Gold Coast is reporting a big drop in foreign tourists, and there's speculation1 the dollar now could reach $US1.10 in coming weeks.

 
BP has agreed to pay $1 billion to repay the damage from last year's Mexico Gulf2 oil spill. The US Justice Department brokered3 the deal and the money will go to the five Gulf states worst affected4. The economic cost of the disaster has reached tens of billions of dollars. BP has also announced it's suing the company that owned the rig for $40 billion.
 
Now to the markets, and overnight in the US, the Dow closed down 52 points. The Nasdaq was up 17. The S&P500 up six. In London, the FTSE dropped three points. Checking commodity prices, West Texas Crude is at $111.69 US a barrel, $131.92 is Tapis. And gold is at $1,506.79 an ounce.
 
And let's look at the latest dollar, 107.46 US, 73 euro cents and 65 pence sterling5.
