On Monday, March 21st, Saudi Arabia stated that they will not bear any responsibility for a shortage in their oil supply after an attack by Yemen’s Houthi rebels. Saudi Arabia, being the worlds largest oil exporter, has chosen very cautious statements since the oil markets are in such a fragile state. Repeated Houthi attacks are likely going to affect Saudi Arabia’s ability to produce enough oil to meet its obligations. Worry has spread that the attacks are threatening the stability of the energy supplies. The benchmark price of oil has rose to over $112 a barrel. The United States has transferred many antimissile interceptors in order to help Saudi Arabia defend its oil supplies from drone and missile attacks.
Amongst all of the chaos going on in the world, gas and oil supplies are being heavily threatened. Not only is there a war going on in Russia, one of the larger supporters of oil for many countries, Saudi Arabia is also being attacked. With such large oil distributors being threatened, Many people are quite worried as to where the supply will come from. We can only hope with the assistance of the United States, some of the attacks may cease.
