Venezuelan President Chavez Warns of Higher Gas Prices if U.S. Strikes Iran


www.foxnews.com

In his opening address of a rare OPEC summit, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warned the United States on Saturday that oil prices would further surge if the U.S. contemplates an attack against his country or Iran.
The summit of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries opened Saturday in Saudi Arabia, with heads of states and delegates from 12 of the world\'s biggest oil-producing nations listening to a recitation from the Quran.
After the quotes from Islam\'s holy book, Chavez warned that the U.S. should not target OPEC members for foreign policy reasons.
\"If the United States attempts the madness of invading Iran or attacking Venezuela again, the price of oil is probably going to reach $200, not just $100,\" Chavez said.

Chavez needs to mind his own buisness. He only is significant because of his oil. If he had no oil, we would not care about him. BUt I hope he doesn\'t make prices go up to 200$ a barrel. I can\'t afford that! I know alot of more people would go broke too!

Actually he is minding his own business.

He is just trying to show you, that more crisis in the Middle East will cause higher gas prices in the United States (and everywhere else of course). Yet you seem to forget, that Venezuela does not have a gas shortage problems, since they actually export oil - when United States have to import the majority in order to keep their big pick-up trucks rolling. You better start thinking of buying a cheap Korean car if you wish to drive somewhere in the near future...

china is the major importer of iranian oil,they will not be pleased should that supply be cut off some how.

americas economy is dependant on china,if they decide to pull,america will fall.

the american regime are complete idiots,how they got themselves into this quagmire is beyond me.

Mr. Chavez needs to shut his pie hole and worry about his own little dictatorship he's running over there.

Venezuela is a founding member of OPEC and as such their government's views and statements on the issue of oil need to be taken seriously in that context.

Whatever your personal opinion of Mr Chavez, the topic is "Higher Gas Prices if U.S. Strikes Iran" (and to that I say duh!
)

You know, bad as he is in the world community because of his communistic affiliations with Castro, he (Chavez) cares more about us than our own BUSH does..

Imagine the chaos when, not if we have no means of transportation, or fill up your gas tank but it wont leave you anything to eat with. Imagine how incredible all the prices will be for food, and necessities?
Ever think of that? Think about it, those of you who dont beleive, because it WILL happen, thanks to the oil whores and Bush's wars. That little man wants to screw us but good, if anyone doesnt see it now, dang it, you're nuttier than a fruit cake.

Save up money to buy a horse and make a wagon, because that's going to be the new mode of transporation. Or a bycycle...provided they are still allowed on the streets.

So does the US gov't. Chavez is an ally of Iran. Like the US and Britain. Friends looking over friends. Although I'd say being friends with the US is up there with signing a death wish. But that's just me.

Chavez is once again speaking words of wisdom that are being taken out of context and twisted into a threat.

Is it not painfully obvious that if you attack a major oil producing nation that it will disrupt their production and result in increased prices? It certainly does no take an economics genius to figure that out.

Moreover, why should OPEC not have the ability to defend it's members?
If he really wanted to play hardball, he wouldn't have warned about increased prices, he would have threatened to cut off the supply of OPEC oil to the US... which would really cause problems.

This is exactly why we need to be independent of foreign oil. We have 400 plus years of coal reserves in the U.S. and new technology too burn the coal at a much much reduced polution rate. The coal can be turned into oil including millions and millions of tons of coal shale deposits in the western part of the U.S. Do you see us building nuclear electric generating plants here in the U.S. I do not think so instead we export our technology to other countries.

Better yet lets convert over to burning hydrogen. Almost forgot it would be harder for the oil companys to control hydrogen or even electric driven vehicles. Ethanol is a drop in the bucket now, but will soon start to make a dent in the amount of imported oil we consume. Do I hear the words Oil lobbist, what impact do you think these Oil lobbist have on your pocketbook?

The shrinking American dollar is another issue that will have us Americans pay more for gasoline. A lot of talk of going to the Eurodollar to be the standard of purchasing world market oil. Either way we in the U.S. could be paying even higher prices for oil and gas unless the dollar starts to recover soon. I believe $200.00 a barrel oil would bring our economy to its knees. We have 2 choices to let world events dictate what you pay at the pump or start a crash alternative energy program in this country. Those running for office listen up if you want to be elected or relected take heed and lets get going and get something done. Listen up America I am sounding the alarm.

I vote full steam ahead for alternative fuel sources. If we can put men on the Moon using the Apollo project to get there . Surely to God with our incredible technology in the U.S. we can have an all out alternative fuel energy bill passed to really and truely get something done. Instead of the same old window dressing with the present energy bill.

Folks listen up we in the U.S. are using Model T technology when we all know we have spaceage technology we can use today that is absolutely mind boggling to get us out of this energy crisis and I do mean crisis. As you all know when the price of oil goes up most everything in our economy goes up including food. American citisens it is your choice to get things done when it comes to alternative energy or you can leave it in the hands of politicians. Rik Riley

Question: Where do you get hydrogen from?

The best source to extract or crack hydrogen from is good old H20 the world has more abundance of water then fossil fuels. Hydrogen as you know is odorless and a colorless gas that burns very easily also weighing less then any known element. Hydrogen is also found in the make up of fossil fuels and is actually present in most organic compounds found on Earth. There is at the moment no one perfect solution to solve the energy crunch but there are plenty of alternative solutions. Until zero energy devices are released to the public we do our best to get by.
