Oil Prices Climb As Middle East Tensions Intensify

MarketWatch Pulse --
Crude-oil futures continued to rise in electronic trade on Friday, as concerns over unrest in the Middle East intensified. Oil futures for October delivery rose $1.19, or 1.2%, to $99.50 a barrel in European trading hours, adding to a 1.3% gain from Thursday, when the U.S. Federal Reserve said it would launch a third round of quantitative easing. Violence in the Middle East and North Africa pushed oil prices higher, with concerns that this week's unrest will disrupt oil supply. On Thursday, protesters attempted to storm the grounds of the U.S. embassy in Yemen.

Oil Prices Climb As Middle East Tensions Intensify? Forget the Middle East and use our own crude oil for our population. A group of zealots that have nothing else to do but cause problems for other people.
Big Oil continues to sell fuel and natural gas on the world market for higher prices, there will be NO price reduction for the cost of fuel or natural gas IN the US. 'Coming out of the closet' Chucks lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, the jobs are Not here. Chuck's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population and the job numbers continue to be down – no matter how smoooooth talking Chuck spins those numbers and he can spin them very well! People will still drive and buy fuel no matter what but it sure helps to have a job too!
The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens! Speculators, manipulators and the banks continue to unfairly and unjustly make the driving public pay higher prices at the pump for their personal benefit.
How much will gas prices go up and they will rise, the trend is always up with fuel prices. The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon, $3, $3.50/gallon or $4.00/gallon is Not the new low!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

The predicted price easing at the pumps this fall is looking more and more like wishful thinking as speculators take advantage of growing world unrest.

So aren't we almost self sufficient, here in North America? So why worry about the Muslim dogs, rioting in the street. Oh, do I wish Reagan was still President. I can just imagine what he'd do to these assholes, if they had stormed the embassy and killed U.S. staff. I can almost hear the Battleship New Jersey tuning up the big guns, like it did in Lebanon, when they bombed the U.S. Embassy there.

Just the printing of this article, gives the speculators more fuel and fire to justify sucking up all of the oil commodities. I wish they would have to take delivery on the oil they keep buying. Wouldn't it be funny to see these big tankers of oil be delivered to Wall Street. Then maybe we could finally get back to the true supply and demand that it SHOULD be!

the current tensions are bad for oil and gas prices, especially since no one knows what the US plan (if there is a plan) is

Now that Romney has delegated foreign policy decisions to Netanyahu we will only have to wait till February for another war and $10 gas if he wins in November. Seeing that 34% of the voters don't want to be confused by the facts, there is the very real possibility that Romney will win - and finish the neocon wrecking job begun in 2001.
