How many of you think that now that the US has created a buzz phrase, that Fox can get its teeth into, for the Saudi petition and marches... TPTB will use this to raise gas prices in the US?
It's not far to go. And once you break into the $5 on the signs it's only a matter of time.

Saudi Arabia wont let the oil situation screw up our country. They depend on us mostly for their purchasers. But indeed, it will be interesting to watch. If the Saudis' say screw the US, and oil reaches 120 a barrel or more, then holds at that price, can you say hyperinflation? Senator Ron Paul made a comment about this very topic. He even touched basis in his book. About the monetary policy, and its correlation with commodities.

I don't think that the one tank of gas I get will be all the big of a difference to me over the long run.
And I don't have a personal tanker.

erm, don't oil prices always go up during middle east tensions? it's almost always an artificial high, and social and political unrest is a wonderful excuse for middle east export companies to raise prices, which, combined with market speculation...well, then you have $7 a gallon gas.
unless you believe it's all completely manipulated, which is a different discussion...sort of.

Here is the list with the best cars to have in the next 2-3 yars..
