If the U.S. launches a military strike on Syria, how much do you think your local fuel prices will increase?
1-15 ¢/gal (1-4 ¢/L)
16-30 ¢/gal (5-8 ¢/L)
31-50 ¢/gal (9-13 ¢/L)
51 ¢/gal or more (14 ¢/L or more)
No impact on fuel prices

Price of gas will probably increase with or without a military strike.

ə since there was no strike, the question was academic.
i answered that it would carry no impact. ə

Any time the government does something overseas, its just an excuse for the gas companies to raise our prices. if there is a fire at a refinery on the east coast the prices seem to raise on the west coast and the same for the gulf coast refineries. When we don't usually get any of our oil from these places or our gas.

It is hard to say, I am not sure they will rise. Of course, any excuse to raise prices is usually taken.
I would guess that any serious Gulf of Mexico storm would raise prices more. They usually do.
We don't get any oil from Syria that I know of.

The .51 per gallon. The question is a great one but some of the responses are uncalled for. The persons trying to bring in other topics by slamming our President and saying we should stay out of Syria should keep their personal political opinions to themselves and just answer the simple question.

If the U.S. launches a strike against Syria, it will be because BO wants to deflect attention from Benghazi and I suspect that impeachment hearings will begin shortly after an investigation into the Al Qaeda-Syrian connection. Gas price increases will occur, however, they will stabilize and getting rid of BO will help our overall energy policy.

This is actually a difficult Poll to answer... My thoughts are mixed because we (or at least I) truly have NO idea what a "Military strike on Syria" would/could do to our Fuel prices in the U.S.A. History's proven that whenever there's War &/or Chaos there's usually LARGE increases in the Price of all Petroleum/Fuel products. So with a guess I would roughly estimate a 16-30¢ increase; but I'm very close to the 31-50¢ option as well. A primary factor in my decision to vote 16-30¢ is the time of year we are in. With Winter not TOO far away & an average price decline (based on Historical data) most every Winter, I would guesstimate that any potential price increase(s) would be slightly LESS than the same event happening Mid-Summer. But that's just my opinion & hopeful idea, most of this is speculation anyhow, with very little factual data. Hoping for the best for the great US!

I agree. Oil companys and gas stations look for any reason to raise the price of fuel. Middle East War or not.

Went with realistic 16-30 - Oil companies raise whatever they want. 2% of us oil comes from Syria @ 3.80 a gal 2% would = $3.88. But everything with oilcompanies is 4 or 5 x's more. How else can they have profits of 30 billion a year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think it will affect the price to some degree, but not significantly. Regardless, I don't drive more than I need to these days anyway, so I don't expect it to affect me too much.
