With the price of oil continually rising, and those oil barons and the rest who have there dirty paws in the oil money bag continuing to manipulate
the price per barrel and the world economic situation along the way, don't you think that if the price of oil continues to sky-rocket that the cost
of transporting goods internationally will become unviable!
It will soon get to a point where it'll be cheaper for the governments of the world to sponsor and build new manufacturing plants locally to produce
goods that they used to import previously. Even thou those goods might be cheaper to manufacture, the cost would be greater than producing locally by
the large cost of transporting the goods to your country.
Therefore, the rising price of oil might be largely a bad thing but if it manages to retain manufacturing in western countries rather than going
offshore to Asia to produce the goods, then it would be a positive side-effect in that more local people who dont have a trade or qualification behind
them would be able to get a manufacturing job.
More jobs, euqls more employed, equals more tax and profit for the government.
