yup, if there is a crisis concerning iran...get ready for 140$ a barrel for oil. i read this in my hometown newspaper by writer gwynne dyer. he implies that cars are the main reason oil will rise in cost. "in 20 years time there will be more cars in china than in the u s a- about 200 million of them. " 10 years after that, india's car population will also overtake america's". "within 20 years , russia and brazil, will have more cars than japan". " we are headed for a billion-car world". that means permanent high gas prices. he states, " if the oil price rises gradually from 70$ to 100$ over the next 5 years, people and governments will start paying serious attention to energy conservation and alternate energy sources. but if the oil prices leap to 100$ or more in 1 swift jump we will have the mother of all recessions, and then there will be a desperate shortage of funding for developing alternative sources of energy. besides a u s attack on iran, if the markets ever decide that "peak oil" is upon us and that the supply of oil is heading for actual decline, the price would soar out of sight overnight".
