Gas prices in the United States will continue to rise as OPEC’s second-largest oil producer fends off total collapse at the hands of extremists, experts say.

The price of oil rose to $107 yesterday as the crisis in Iraq reached a fever pitch. Oil prices rose more than 4 percent this week alone, and experts are worried the continued violence could have an ongoing effect on prices at the pump.

“The violence and turmoil in Iraq is already affecting oil prices and have boosted the price to a 10-month high,” said Mary McGuire, director of public and legislative affairs at AAA Southern New England. “It’s likely that we’ll see an increase this week or the week after at the pump as the result of our new oil prices.”

Fear in oil-producing countries can have a drastic effect on the bottom dollar.

Just think what gas prices would be had Doofus Bush & Creep Cheney not invaded Iraq to get the WMD stock pile that never existed. Gas was just over $1 a gallon prior to that invasion.

Personally I think this is panic and the oil supply will not be significantly impacted. The oil is mostly in the southeast and the insurgents are in the west. That is Sunni country and the oil is in Shiite country who will not allow these insurgents in. The good Sunni's fought these crazys once but got nothing from Baghdad for their troubles, so they are not willing to fight again.

Reliability – assured supply – is an important factor in the price of any commodity. Iraq is in chaos and cannot be counted on for anything now, so it is no wonder oil is going up.
