The US gets very little(if any)of its supply of oil from Iran. We only get a quarter of our supply from the mid-east as a whole. And you can pretty
much bet that the USN is prepared to clear the Strait of Hormuz within the first hours of the opening of hostilities. The worst thing that would
happen would be a huge spike in the price of oil which would send inflationary fears throughout the world's economy and would undoubtedly send the
global economy into a death spiral.
