Rising Oil Prices Threaten Airline Business


Although U.S. airlines´ profit rose 2 percent last year, the carriers are now facing a big problem. The rising fuel prices forces them to increase airfares again and again.

Carriers have already lifted airfares 4 times in 2011, which makes additional expenses of around $40 per traveler compared to the end of 2010.

"Fuel prices are now the highest cost for the airlines," finance professor and pilot Frank Werner said.

  The Revolution in Libya is the Cause...  
Libya produces 2% of the world oil and any disruption to the flow will cause a ripple effect.

This is only part of the problem to come. If Algeria joins the domino effect even more of the worlds production will take a hit and if the biggest domino falls, Saudi Arabia, all hell will break loose. Oil prices will easily hit $200 a barrel and shortages will be world wide until the coup ends.

The U.S. has more oil then the middle east its true, but we won´t open up drilling until we have 200$/barrel oil, and then it will take a few years to build the pipelines.
