Analysis: Oil price rise raises specter of global recession

reuters -- A jump in energy prices is jamming the slow-turning cogs of an economic recovery in the West, but that may be nothing compared to the economic shock an Israeli attack on Iran would cause.

Oil rose to a 10-month high above $125 a barrel Friday, prompting responses from policymakers around the world including U.S. President Barack Obama, watching U.S. gasoline prices follow crude to push toward $4 a gallon in an election year.

Europe may have more to fear as its fragile economic growth falters and Greece, Italy and Spain look for alternative sources to the crude they currently import from Iran, where an EU oil embargo, intended to make Iran abandon what the West fears are efforts to develop nuclear weapons, comes into force in June.

@ dave27johnson

syria is not a major oil producing country. it's iran that's making all this mess, in addition to speculations and crazy bedding in wall street.

Iran and Syria have been stirring up fear in the region, so costs continue to go up. Speculators profit from fear.

We all know the Global economy still is not very healthy or stable. So any increase in the price of crude oil is reflected in the higher costs at the pump. This high cost will have a definite effect on the still fragile Global economy with the return of a recession.

Perhaps this is why the current administration is ignoring the voice of the American people.... They are hoping this Obammanation will happen!

The sham of curtailing American energy development on PUBLIC property and touting the increased development on PRIVATE property to show he is working on bettering the US!!

The shale gas discovery and development must have put a real dent into his agenda so he fought back by bringing into place endless regulations to new exploration hoping to squash that avenue to get off foreign dependance on energy.

It seems this current administration is pushing reliance on foreign energy dependance just so he and mr chew (chu) can "chew" the American people into accepting his policies!!!!

With China claiming a BIG bunch of natural gas, the long outlook for high oil prices should diminish.

Oh well. If we have a "real" recession, world wide kind, there won't be much of a need for a lot of gasoline and that price will collapse. Doom and gloom.
