The energy index jump of 4% has been blamed on the crisis in Syria and the potential of a military intervention.
Although Syria is not an oil supplier, traders anticipate that the civil war could escalate into a regional conflict that could disrupt oil supplies.
Natural gas prices for the month increased by 2% due to a series of planned maintenance outages in the UK.
