Obama To Hold News Conference Friday

The White House just announced that President Obama will hold a news conference Friday at 11:15 a.m. ET.

He'll address "rising energy prices among other issues," the official statement says.

Presumably, reporters will ask him about the crisis in Libya and other recent events in North Africa and the Middle East.

We're planning to live-blog as it happens.
