One guarantee in new Iraq crisis: Gas price will rise

Jul 1, 2014 - Samuel G. Erham, Riverton


Whatever is going to happen in Iraq with ISIS conquering territory and taking control of major cities, one thing will be certain. If the United State intervenes, or if other countries do, or if there are sanctions, or whatever is done, you can bet that gasoline prices will go up in the United States.

That is the only sure thing about all of this, and you can bank on that. I still don't know exactly who decides what gas will cost, but I do know that they will use any excuse to shaft the consumer.
