Oh shit, that means petrol will go sky high.Time to get the mountain bike out of the garage lol

Wish I could use a bike, I would. But I actually do live on a mountain and the uphill ride's too steep. I looked at cycles with battery powered motors, but they cost about £1000. So I guess petrol (gas) rules.

Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi has warned that any military adventurism by the israeli regime against Tehran would mean self-destruction for Tel Aviv.

“The Zionist regime (Israel) knows that attacking Iran is an unattainable wish, unless the regime seeks to commit suicide,” Vahidi said on Sunday.

I don't see Iran closing the straight unless they are attacked. To do so would ensure the end of that regime, and what regime wants that?

I also don't see Iran sinking a few US carriers. Do you really think the US navy would just sail their carriers into dangerous waters when they wouldn't even have to to accomplish their mission? Iran does have the capability to attack a carrier, and given enough missiles could probably make a few hits. The navy guys know this so they'll just stay out of range and let their aircraft fly a little farther.

It's the destroyers and littoral ships that will be put in harms way. They'll be the ones sent into the straight along with the anti-mining ships. I expect they'll send in Aegis destroyers.

There are enough land based aircraft within range of Iran that the carriers can sit back and play a bit of a secondary role. Land based aircraft, such as F15s can be used as loitering aircraft, while the carrier based F18s can serve as strike aircraft on whatever targets they can reach. It takes less fuel to fly in and blow and something up, then fly home,than it does to hang around waiting for a target. Also the carrier planes can be used to control the waters surrounding Iran. There are always tankers available, too.

It also has to do with the markets going up the last days. Speculators follow. Either way, one thing is for sure, no economy (good or bad) can sustain $109 a bucket of the black gold - especially this economy!

Your short statement says more in it than this whole thread !

The war mongering is being turned up to support the American Dollar/Reserve Currency/Petrodollar (all the same thing) while it is being printed into embossed toilet paper.

There is nothing in the price per barrel that is any relationship to anything of logic. Prices per gallon on gasoline in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Venezuela are at the same low ridiculous price they always have been. The price per barrel now is low compared to Pres. Bush's days but the price at the pump is NOW around the same as Bush's highest. Never in my life have I seen a more blatant rip off scheme at OIL. Everyone and their mother is getting a cut but you and I! If you notice..the so called experts always have about a half dozen reasons for either Oil's or Gasoline's increase or drop. That's because they have no damn idea what so ever! I can't even stand to listen to the bullshit anymore. It gets me so pissed off and makes me want to have bad thoughts to the liars that be! Let's see...the latest round of excuses that are popular this week. The all encompassing and always reoccurring "middle east tensions", next USA fans, DROUGHT so corn is high and the mandatory ethanol is now costly, Next, pipeline in Wisconsin broke, Next and last, the always reoccurring Refinery Blaze. It's a constant crime in progress!

increasing the price of oil is supporting the dollar? really? checked bond prices and interest rates lately? don't think commodity prices are rising as a result of the Fed's zero percent interest rate policy and money printing? You fool. the Bernank will burn the dollar to ash. the price of oil is not going up. the value of the dollar is going down. think the world doesn't know the rig is up?

Angela Merkel summed up the dollar-skeptic viewpoint last year. “Excessively cheap money in the U.S. was a driver of today’s crisis,” she told the German parliament. And America’s solution—even more cheap money—was just setting the world up for another crisis, she said. It was just a matter of time.

....I always thought it was funny when folks in the US would say how "cheap" gas was in the US compared to Europe...gas, minus shipping, is the same EVERYWHERE...taxes add to the base cost...or the govt can cover the cost and have "cheap" gas, Kuwait ie...in the UK, adding $5 in taxes to a gallon/ltr...certainly makes UK gas expensive....
