SHIPPING CEO: Iran Could Send Oil To $440/Barrel

    Obviously, if oil hit a price that was nearly triple it’s record high, no one would do anything. All those countries and suppliers that would literally be printing money wouldn’t change what they are doing in order to increase supply and print more money. They would be under no pressure from any political/military power to implement extreme measures at that price or any price before it.

    Nope, supply gets choked off here and there is nothing we can do.

    Lol. If oil in some crazy world hit $300 a barrel, the Keystone pipeline would literally be built overnight.
