Have you noticed that the price at the pump has risen a bit in the past few days? There is speculation (of course) that the Iranian naval exercises and bellicose rhetoric have been contributing factors.It is always something it seems. Prices rise anytime there is some unrest near any oil exporting region. Sometimes it is just an excuse to wring wring more buck per barrel out of the world consumer. Or so I would guess.
The Persians would probably do well to keep their "navy" in port and their air on the ground. Nothing good (for them) can come out of their military equipment in such close proximity to those of the West.
