The article focuses on the impact of war between Iran and Israel on the price of oil in the world market. With the decision of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to continue the battle, oil prices increased from $136 a barrel to a record of $147. The increase of price has affected the U.S., importing 13 million barrels a day, as well as Canada and Mexico. In addition, the virtual war resolution has demanded President George W. Bush to initiate a blockage to halt Iranian imports of refined petroleum products
