SPEAK OUT: Will Middle East Turmoil Affect Suwanee Gas Prices?

Right after the latest observance of the September 11 terrorist attacks, the United States is beseiged by turmoil in the Middle East.

Media reports Thursday, Sept. 14, note that protesters have stormed the U.S. Embassy in Yemen, chanting "death to America" and burning the American flag. This comes recently after the U.S. ambassador to Lybia and three others were killed.

And early Thursday, there also were reports of violence near the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt.

All nonessential diplomatic U.S. workers have been ordered to leave Libya, according to reports, and U.S. warships are poised off the coast.

Of course, this raises fears of spikes in gasoline prices in the U.S. The Middle East contains most of the world's top oil-producing countries.

A check with georgiagasprices.com on Thursday showed the low price in Suwanee was $3.75 at several stations.
