It also comes just as a strike by Norwegian workers is curbing flows from North Sea fields.

The US gave exemptions to all the big users, so it won't be that big a deal.

Iran is building pipelines so it can still sell oil to China and India without dependence on the Strait of Hormuz.

Iran = the government of Iran, and yes--who cares! Nobody should. The 90% of their populace is not represented by that terrorist/religious/fanatic regime.

U.S. = the government of the U.S., and yes--who cares! Nobody should. The 90% of our populace is not represented by our self-serving, superiorist, better-than-thou, non-Constitutional oligarchy.

When has "Iran" ever told the truth about anything? When has the "U.S." ever told the truth about anything?

Precisely why we need to pump our own as much as possible and consider natural gas for powering our vehicles.

Fortuneatly, lowered global oil demand should keep oil price increase to a minimum.

Wow, here comes the attempt to bring fear back and bring on higher oil prices. BTW how much oil does the US import from Iran? None or next to none.....Here's a concept let China import from Iran, drain it dry, while the rest of the world goes on with reasonable oil prices.
