Oil Price: The Truth

"Neoconservative forces in and around the Bush administration and beneficiaries of war dividends — wishing to deflect attention away from war as the main culprit for the skyrocketing energy prices — tend to blame secondary or marginally relevant factors: OPEC, China and India for their increased demand for energy, or supply-demand imbalances in global markets. Whatever the contributory role of these factors, the fact remains that the current oil price hikes started with the beginning of the Bush administration’s wars against Iraq and Afghanistan. Furthermore, a closer examination of these factors reveals that their roles in the current price inflation of oil have been negligible."
