Fears raise prices

President Barack Obama said on Monday that jitters about the prospect of a military conflict involving Iran were a main factor behind the recent rise in fuel prices. “The biggest driver of these high gas prices is speculation about possible war in the Middle East, which is why we’ve been trying to reduce some of the loose talk about war there,” he said. The price in the US has risen 12c to $3.81 a gallon in the past two weeks.
