11:01 am
show. it's to be or not to be israel to paris to go to the polls again an unprecedented repeat election. i'm brian thomas thanks so much for joining us u.s. president donald trump says the united states would respond militarily to the attacks on saudi arabia's oil facilities to drone attacks at the facility that's the largest of its kind and the curry's oil field that is saudi arabia's 2nd biggest oil field washington is blaming iran u.s. president tweeting there is reason to believe that we know the culprit we are locked and loaded depending on verification but are waiting to hear from the kingdom referring to saudi arabia a rainy and back to the rebels based in yemen have been claiming responsibility but
11:02 am
washington says there is no evidence it taks were long from there u.s. officials say these satellite images of the impact zones indicate a level of precision beyond the ability of who's the rebels alone. for his part iran's president hassan rouhani this is a very obvious joining go for the usual roma americans instead of confessing that they have presence in the region. in syria in yemen and other areas he has been problematic they accuse the countries of the region. so how are the markets responding to the loss of 5 percent of global delhi oil production monica jones who did have new businesses here for more on that good morning monica prices spiking right away on the news what's it looking like right now if east somewhat i think you mentioned it also i've just checked just before i came to the studio currently brant crude stands at $67.00
11:03 am
a barrel still 10 percent higher than it was before the attack but it's somewhat east and we're not surprised of course that oil prices spiked those attacks were hitting the world's biggest petroleum processing facility and saudi arabia of course being the biggest oil exporter shipping more than $7000000.00 barrels a day a knock out of 5 percent of global oil surprise crude supply is dramatic at least at 1st especially when consider that the facility will not be operational for weeks to come according to experts and this represents 50 percent of overall saudi oil production so so it is quite quite a blow and shows you know just how vulnerable our global oil when you connect is it is all connected it's not just vulnerable i think it's very important to say that it's very volatile let me just remind you that we've been talking for weeks and months about forwarding all prices in fact they were falling below $60.00
11:04 am
a barrel in recent weeks to the point that only last week on thursday opec members came together and saudi arabia in particular demanded that everybody sticks to cutting out. ports in order to keep prices somewhat ok especially after it seemed on wednesday last week when us president on a trump sort of implied that he might ease sanctions on iran which would have boosted out put an obviously way on prices so we're talking about a very volatile situation but not that dramatic yet the situation in saudi arabia what happened is dramatic but when it comes to oil prices the peaks this year we've seen where 70 $5.00 a barrel when not there yet much much lower right now ok where are we are are we right the 60 or $6767.00 a barrel barrel that's just what we having right now right now ok what about consumers i mean when i drive up to the pump you know later today i'm i'm i going
11:05 am
to feel this immediately i don't know if you can feel it immediately here in germany just yet of course whenever something happens with the oil presidential it'll hit the consumer but it's quite interesting that i found out of all it'll be the motorists on the u.s. west coast who who are most likely to feel it why because all facilities those that were attacked account for nearly half of all u.s. crawl crude imports from saudi arabia and california in particular relies very heavily on those imports due to lack of pipelines to connect them with oil rich texas so there's just this is a problem for you so the sun doesn't always shine no in calaveras county when it comes to problems like this monica thanks very much ok. let's bring you down some of the other stories making the news at this hour votes are being counted in tunisia's presidential life and that fallon is widely seen as a test of one of the world's youngest democracies the only one to emerge from the arab spring of 2011 turnout was low in the election called after tunisia's 1st
