Double edge sword
The USA pulls out from the Iran nuclear deal in May and fears of a war between Israel and Iran may affect Iran's energy exports. This tension and a middle eastern shortage of oil have increased the crude oil price.
Crude oil prices rose further following the re-election of socialist leader Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela and fresh US sanctions against the country.
Higher oil prices and a weaker dollar against the pound makes oil more expensive in the UK as oil is traded in dollars.

This is terrible news for the motorist but good news for fastener companies involved in supplying the more buoyant oil industry.
