NBC’S TOM COSTELLO HAS
BEEN LOOKING INTO THAT.
TOM, HAVE WE SEEN ANY
IMPACT YET?
>>Reporter: LESTER,
GOOD EVENING PUMP PRICES TODAY ARE
STABLE BUT
MOST ANALYSTS DO PREDICT WE WILL
SEE GAS PRICES JUMP
LIKE 10 TO 25 CENTS A GALLON OVER
THE
COMING WEEKS AS SAUDI ARABIA
TRIES TO RECOVER FROM
THE ATTACKS.
THE NATIONAL AVERAGE
RIGHT NOW $2.55 A GALLON
IT WILL BE A LOT MORE
OUT ON THE WEST COAST, LESS DOWN
SOUTH.
HERE IS GOOD NEWS, WE ARE NOW
PAYING ON AVERAGE 30
CENTS LESS PER GALLON THAN A YEAR
AGO.
IN ADDITION, THE UNITED STATES
PRODUCES MORE OIL THAN
SAUDI ARABIA
THAT MAKES US FAR LESS
DEPENDENT ON OIL THAN YEARS PAST
AND
PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID HE’LL TAP
THE PETROLEUM RESERVE
IF NECESSARY TO STABILIZE
GAS PRICES
THE UNITED STATES PUMP PRICES
WILL BE EXPOSED TO AND
VULNERABLE TO THE WORLD OIL
MARKET AND THAT COULD
SEND PUMP PRICES EVEN HIGHER

About the author

Comments

  1. British have it correct , they are not falling for it ! Anything near that fire was melted besides a drone can be made to look like another’s or can be captured and made to look like another ! To much to soon and to many false flags have happened to honestly know even with a staged photo if presented again ,

  2. So comedians can't be comedians anymore where they make fun of things. I mean that's what they do. I'm just going to boycott SNL because they don't know how Comedy Works and how you make fun of things with comedy

  3. Sr-71, B-2, satellite cams, why can't the USAF, NASA, the Space Command, be able to have eyes on where the drones, or cruise missiles came from, bombing the Saudis gas plant?

  4. I feel sorry for her future husband…she is without doubt A GREEDY PIG -People who are greedy are a little too interested in having something. Usually, that something is money. Rich people who keep trying to get more and more money are often accused by being greedy. A gluttonous person is greedy for food. If you're obsessed with something and can't get enough of it, you're greedy for it. This is a word for extreme, grasping, devouring behavior.

  5. Attack on a oil fields in Saudi Arabia……Was Iran responsible??
    I do not believe so….
    When you live in an area of the world, are a member OPEC, you have a very good understanding of your neighbor…..The technology to protect is of the best quality…….Sometimes in comes down to accounting…
    Oil fields not producing, blow it up…..This should have very little effect on gas prices in USA…..
    LIFO….FIFO…..accounting terms..

  6. If saying Chinatown is ***** nuts is racist to nbc or anyone it shows even more why you do not know what you are talking about.

  7. We export more oil than we use, why all this media hype? Bolton is behind this attack, he wanted war, no peace talks. He is a warmonger. Trump doesn't want war, he has tried to talk to other leaders. Yet media and Democrats attack his efforts. As if the past 50 years of policies have worked. I think it's time for a new approach. Bush or Obama, even Clinton, would have already attacked whom ever they thought was responsible..

  8. If it's a set up, it's suppose to look like Iran did it. Investigators need to divulge what they find publicly or stop blaming Iran. You don't have implicit evidence that you can disviulge publicly, then you need to killing.

  9. The Saudi oil field attack could only have been done by three countries with military assets in the area: Israel, Russia or the United States. To get the precision of the strikes, hitting five "spheroids" at the exactly same spot on each, requires a country with its own Global Positioning Satellite technology with accuracy of one meter or less. Iran does not have its own GPS satellite. Israel does.

    New York Post:

    Satellite images released by the US government show the widespread damage and the surgical quality of the strikes against Saudi oil facilities that forced the kingdom to shut down half of its oil production.
    The attacks, carried out with an estimated 20 drones and a number of cruise missiles, hit their targets 17 times at the Abqaiq oil refinery and the Khurais oil field on Saturday morning.

    ​The​y​​ were “extremely surgical,” Samir Madani, co-founder of satellite tracking firm TankerTrackers.com, told CNBC.
    T​he report said ​analysts concluded that of the 17 hits, 14 storage tanks and three processing trains were targeted.

    “Those punctured tanks — same position on all of them,” Madani ​told the business media outlet​​.

    ​The images, first obtained by the Associated Press, reveal that a number of “spheroids” used to process crude oil were also hit, indicating a high-level of accuracy.

  10. A war zone from a confined gas explosion?. Most people don't even know what a war zone is really like..but it sure sounds exciting (to get viewers). A war zone is a lot more than just about physical destruction.

  11. विश्वभर के शिवहत्यारों के घरों की Nightly न्यूज़ 16 Sept 2019!
    अब1स्वयं सोच लो,इंद्रप्रस्थ के शिवहत्यारों तुम्हारा हश्र क्या होगा!

  12. This guy has fair warning that he is engaged to a halfwit. He cannot complain later that she is a dummy if he goes through with this marriage

  13. Unbelievable. I feel sorry for Americans who have to watch news like this. It is so bad,. It is just as bad as Canadian news. You would think the whole world is falling apart.

  14. Lower organism don't give a hoot about humans, we're just fertile ground to them. If climate change does release more and new such organisms, it's not as if we have not been warned. I've become the kind of guy who roots for the comet on disaster movies, but a bug or two will do.

  15. The problem with the Auto workers and GM shutting down plants was bound to happen. The move to phases out gasoline cars in favor of electric means that those plants would ultimately have to be closed. The messed up part is that the world does need less carbon producing greenhouse gasses. and the move to electric is good, really good, but it comes at the cost of peoples jobs durring the transition. Not only that the tech involved with retooling factories to producing electric vehicles, which lack no less than 50% of the parts an equivalent combustion car requires, means that many of these jobs will be lost also due to the basic lack of required manpower, and even worst, most manpower is replaced by robotics in modern factories, especially those producing EV's . Technology is doing what it always does. Liquidate man power. what people must keep a close eye on, is the movement of technology and how it may impact your lives. One of the worst moves people made were purchasing those $1000 iphones. Apple who makes products for the classes not the masses screwed everyone over by introducing a phone that cost as much as peoples mortage payment. ya gota ask yourselves, how then will other companies responds to such price hikes? they will follow, putting the average person out of the reach of acquiring a good phone, raising the rates of all phones. we are steadily moving towards a time where their will just be rich people and poor people and no one in between. And who's responcible for all this…. YOU ARE. by always accepting vanity over sanity.

  16. Do you know a average employee asembly worker makes 21.00 to 31.00 $ an hour and two paid 15 min breaks, and lunch breaks do you get that be grateful for all you have america because someday it might not be there thank God for everything

  17. remember when people could use punctuation when they wrote but now its too difficult so people just let one sentence run right into another one and hope that whoever reads it can figure it out do you

  18. Trump needs to shut his mouth! This fruit cake will put us into a war with his mouth. I’m so sick of trump.
    Funny how they said the fuel we get fro South America and Alaska were we would not have to rely on saudi oil and now they lied to us about where our oil comes from.

  19. NBC: slipping deeper and deeper in "new you cannot use." FFS what kind of BS was this "news" about this engagement ring? Worthless, waste of time and space…GMAFB.

  20. Saudi Arabia / UAE , THEY LET IRAN ATTACK another 9-11, trying to get U.S. to go to war with Iran.

    Smiling Two Face Crocodiles want the Iran problem solved, just like Iraq Saddam Hussein 9-11 was orchestrated by them to get U.S. to going to war for them.

  25. Smells more like China own Project to create Chaos. China knows that Iran and the USA does not get along, so chances are that President Xi wants the USA and Iran to Destroy each other, so that he can become the "Saviour" of the World by Ruling the World. There are many "Onion Layers" (Black Budget) in China Communist Party's Secret Projects that no one knows about. If the USA goes to another War like Iran, the Chinese knows that the USA will go Bankrupt, so they will have an Window of Opportunity to invade the USA from Alaska then through Canada.
    We know through Nostradamus's prophecy that the "Orient" (China) will Rise but as soon as it rises they will be Crushed and Destroyed, also the Holy Bible itself says that in the Last Days before Jesus returns, 1 third of the World population will be Destroy, and they are the Chinese themselves for attempting to Rule the World. Revelation 9:18 "the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone."

  30. SNL has not been funny for a long time, their policy of not being offensive is iladvised. As a consumer it makes me think less of their sponsors knowing that such incompetent management is allowed.

  31. You need to get people to look at Google Earth and check out the North Pole and the South Pole as well as Alaska. There is barely any white left in the northern hemisphere except for Greenland

  32. Sometimes the things the news reports makes me glad I live under a rock. I'm going back to put my head back down and eat my hay, and pretend I can't see the wolf hiding in the woods!

  33. "…after a quick procedure out came the ring…" Good thing or the groom would have to utter "with this turd I thee wed". 😂💩💍

  34. Big Baby and his GOPee sycophants want war in an election year so Emporer Palpatin….I mean President Trump…can claim War Powers Act and hold onto office.
