Heading skywards again,

The cynic in me thinks this is why Trump has been war-mongering.

.....OR - due to the fact that Trump is on the warpath??

Make no bones about it, this man wants a war on his list of accolades. Nothing drives prices up like uncertainty in the markets, and the only thing predictable about Trump is his unpredictability.
In pure diplomatic terms, the man is a ticking time-bomb on a very short fuse.....quite literally wanting to start a modern-day Crusade. He's a disgrace to this country.

The US military use as much oil as India so if war is on the agenda then it would make sense for oil companies to raise prices from an economic standpoint

Same, and for purely selfish reasons high oil prices are fantastic right now as the field I’m on in drying up and has 3-4 yrs of production left. The next project was uncertain due to financial viability but high prices will make it viable and secure my future employment.

Expect gas and electricity prices to go up as well.
