Unrest -- all over the Middle East sort of surrounding the strait of more -- -- main artery.
You know ended 20% of the world's oil comes from this region not to mention that traders the nymex like to get all excited.
About geopolitical jitters so it's very hard for me to believe that we're not gonna see -- will go higher gas prices go with that as.
Yeah that's right you know -- it is deaths caused some analysts say five dollars a barrel for for oil if something happens now with Iran and and what's going out of the mideast always -- fears that you know something else is going to develop somewhere so it's certainly a situation -- to continue to watch but.
You know well gas prices fall they likely will but it's not going to be much of a break for an American especially if this continues to unfold remedies.
