Oil Prices Soar After Attacks on Saudi Facilities

Oil prices hit their highest in four months after two attacks on Saudi Arabian facilities on Saturday knocked out more than 5% of global supply. At the start of trading, Brent crude jumped 19% to $71.95 a barrel, while the other major benchmark, West Texas Intermediate, rose 15% to $63.34. Prices eased back slightly after US President Donald Trump authorised the release of US reserves. It could take weeks before the Saudi facilities are fully back on line.

What use is a false flag operation if you can't make a profit off of it?

In one of the hilarious paradoxes of living in a dishonest society, I will benefit financially from all this.

And yes, gas prices will definitely increase. They were set to make a yearly increase anyway, now it will be even more.

Just use that massive tax increase ($12) you got from the BAPOTUS to buy a gallon or 2.

The sad part is Liberals will use this as a reason to hate Trump even more. Even though Reps are the ones who try to regulate oil access across the world, even starting wars when it's needed, and Liberals are the ones who fight against them every single time. The US does what it does to curb as much of these types of incidents as possible. Sure, it's most likely due to financial gain, can't argue that. But the purpose doesn't overshadow the need for it. So just remember when you start bitching about prices and demonizing Trump for it, if Trump and co. had their way there we would own all oil...it's the Dems who want oil to be at extreme prices because "that's the moral high ground". I'm not disagreeing, I'm just predicting people will start blaming Trump if gas prices go really high because of this and proving how illogical that is.

Hummer: you are pretty far wrong on your Trump comments:
-with no national security adviser on board, Der Dotard will be left more to his own musings, nearly all of which are based on ill-informed judgments driven by what he sees on TV. He's out of his depth strategically and so are those who will try to advise him
-Since the Saudis are controlling the Trump Crime Family for fun and profit, Donny Dangerous will react in a manner MBS and his criminal cabal dictate, whether right or wrong. Those at the top of the DoD and US military are already concerned about President Loudmouth talking smack. Of course, the Iranians know he will have a very hard time following through on his cheap threats
-Trump will do whatever he can to keep gasoline prices down, so as to try to save his position regarding the US auto makers and their working with the State of California on auto emissions. Any significant increase in gas prices further destroy's claims by the Trump administration about 'anti-trust' or 'collusion' between auto makers and their biggest domestic market. All but Trump will recognize that arguing for lower gas mileage at at time of rising gas prices is a loser of a position
-Attempts at a mutual-assistance treaty with Israel will go nowhere. The Senate will not ratify it, especially since it has come to light that Mossad has been spying on White House communications

Through his stupidity, arrogance and mixing business with statecraft Trump has put himself in a box on this matter, at a time when the world oil supply has been dinged. What a swollen brain this Dotard has...

I don't drive past many wall sockets. I also don't want to deal with 12 hour charge times which is best you can get from a standard 120 VAC outlet. I can put 450 miles worth of gas in my truck in 5 minutes. It'll take close to an hour to do that with electric cars using fast charge mode.

Glad you're happy and your driving routes are lined with wall sockets and you have the time to use them.

#40 | POSTED BY SPEAKSOFTLY "

I can get to dozens of gas stations from anywhere in the US in the 12 hours it takes to charge a car from a standard 120 VAC wall socket.

So in practical terms, I can fuel from anywhere there is an electrical outlet. And I don't have to steal someone's electricity to do it.

I'm curious, when you use any of these outlets you drive by, what do people say? Do they object? Do you offer them money? While you are waiting the hours it takes to charge, do they ask you in for coffee or do they make you sit in the car? How does all that work?

#44 | Posted by goatman at 2019-09-16 07:06 PM

#35 Actually Plugshare and EVmatch have hundreds of thousands of charging stations listed in their apps that allow home owners to let members charge up.

There are now more charging stations than gas stations.

A dryer plug will give a L2 charge at 6kw, which fully charged my car in 5 hours.

I rarely ever drive over 200 miles in a day.

There are no panhandlers at the stations I purchace gas from, though there is one who plies his trade caddy-corner from the SHell station at 1604 and Culebra in San Antonio.

Enjoy the very short leash your virtuemobile keeps you on and enjoy handing your money over to the grossly overpriced electric companies in California!

I paied $1.96 in Pascagoula Mississippi last week. I saw a few days ago gas was $2.09 at the HEB I shop at. I don't mind paying those prices at all. If I bothered to do the math, I would think you pay more per mile in your virtuemobile than I pay with either of my two gasoline powered vehicles.

Personally, I think Hispanics are one of the big plusses for the city that speaksoftly calls "horrible". I love the Hispanic people and mixed with a bit of German and Czech descendants for a very eclective culture. If it's so horrible, why do so many people live here?

You don't buy battery cars to save money here though. You can get a used 2017 Yaris for $11.5k before negotiations. Based on the average national annual miles driven at 13,476, at the current average national gas price of $2.564, and the Yaris 55mpg range, it costs $628.23 per year to fuel the Yaris. At the $6400 difference, that's 10 years of ownership. Average car ownership is 4. Even using very, very friendly battery car TCO from 2017, before their exposure in large numbers to harsh climates, the Yaris is cheaper until you hit the 8 year mark, assuming you somehow got a fresh battery and won't be hit with the Bolt's $3k replacement at that time.

Nice info on what the gas prices in San Antonio are for the last 24 hours.

Not sure how it defines how the prices have (or have not) "soared" in San Antonio since there's no info on what they were before the events is UAE.

Meanwhile, here's Denver's Best Gas prices (using the same, Gas Buddy, source).

FWIW: I noticed quite a few gas stations on my route into work had raised their gas prices 20-25 cents since this morning. Unknown what the 'lag time' is for San Antonio, but it seems it's about 36-48 hours for Denver.

Estimated spike of 40 cents. Remove taxes from the equation and Saudi Oil industry being attacked by cruise missiles and cut in half is a total spike of 20 cents or so...
