News

The recent attacks on oil fields and facilities in Saudi Arabia caused a dramatic drop in global oil supply. Wholesale prices rose quickly and consumer prices may follow. Informer Assistant Producer Arion Potts spoke with two experts about the issue.

First is Dr. Jessie Moritz, professor at the ANU Center for Arab and Islamic Studies. Next is John Blackburn, former air vice marshal and current consultant to the industry. John talks about Australia’s fuel and energy reserve policies and what that means for us here in Australia.
