DETROIT Volkswagen Group pleadedguilty Friday to three criminal chargesarising from its diesel emissions scandal, setting it up for a penalty that will probably propel its total costs fromthe debacle past the $20 billion mark.

U.S. District Court Judge Sean Coxin Detroitaccepted the plea but postponed agreeing to proposed fines and terms of a settlement. Another hearing was set for April 21.

Volkswagen, the German automaker that became an icon with its humble Beetle, pleaded guilty to charges of fraud, obstructionof justice and misrepresenting the capability of vehicles with diesel engines it imported into the USA.


Cox said he wanted more time to review the terms of the settlement agreement, which proposes a $4.3 billion fine that is far less than what the company could be fined under federal sentencing guidelines.Volkswagen has agreed to settlements worth about $17 billion for U.S. consumers and dealers who own the automaker’s diesel ve hicles.

    Oil prices haven’t gotten off to the fast start many expected, falling around 6% on average during the first quarter of the year.

That said, despite the lackluster oil market, we still see some interestingopportunities in the oil market. Three stocks we really like right now are DistributionNOW(NYSE:DNOW),Phillips 66(NYSE:PSX), andConocoPhillips(NYSE:COP), which all should do well in the current oil market.
