High and unexpected cost for American people

One of the most important concerns that people in America are dealing with, is the increasing price of each gallon in recent months and it is obvious that we must search about the reasons of rising the price of oil.

As lots of interviews with economists and politics and lots of statistics, some political and economic reasons cause this problem. It seems that the most important reason for this difficulty is because of high demand, low supply and it refers to imposing huge sanctions on Iran. However Saudi Arabia has made promise to alternate Iran’s oil, maybe they couldn’t do that and American nation must pay the price of their bad promise.

Potential world crises in oil-producing countries dramatically increase oil prices. That’s because traders worry the crisis will limit supply. That happened in January 2012 after inspectors found more proof that Iran was closer to building nuclear weapons capabilities. The United States and the European Union began financial sanctions. Iran threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz. The United States responded with a promise to reopen the Strait with military force if necessary. The possibility of an Israeli strike was also a concern.

But the question is that, why ordinary people must suffer from some official’s decision? That’s not fair and is far away from humanity.
