Forced by high oil prices, the United States tears its face "hooligan", and it is necessary to punish the oil producing country in its own way.

Recently, the Saudi Bureau of Statistics released an estimated data stating that the country's GDP in the first quarter (GDP) increased by 9.6%year -on -year, the fastest growth rate in more than ten years.

Among them, non -oil GDP growth was only 3.7%, which was lower than the fourth quarter of last year, and the oil GDP reached 20.4%. As a result, it is not difficult to get. Essence

At this stage of international oil prices, the high -speed rising at this stage is affected by two aspects. One is that the economies of various countries have gradually recovered, and the demand for oil has increased rapidly. Several cuts were cut off, and the supply once quickly declined.

Although the rapid rise in oil prices has increased the economic growth of oil countries such as Saudi Arabia, it is not a good thing for the international community. The United States can't sit still. It has repeatedly put pressure on the OPEC country headed by Saudi Arabia. Increased production, but Saudi Arabia did not compromise, and always adhered to the plan to increase production slightly.

The moves like Saudi Arabia are naturally unacceptable to the United States that pursue hegemonism. According to, on May 5th, local time, the Judiciary of the United States Senate passed the use of a NOPEC called "prohibiting oil production or export of Cartel" ) The bill, the bill allows the US Department of Justice to prosecute the supply of supply of crude oil prices in global crude oil prices by the US Department of Justice.

The bill of this bill means that the US government will be able to sue Saudi oil -producing countries, including Saudi Arabia, to force oil production countries such as Saudi Arabia to increase oil production, hoping to alleviate the domestic energy crisis.

Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in early April of April, bluntly stated that it would use the carrot to increase the stick to forced Saudi to compromise.

Acts such as the United States can be said to be extremely horizontal, but from the existing situation, Saudi Arabia does not intend to go, because for Saudi Arabia, the autonomous decision right of oil production is not a simple economic issue.

Saudi Arabia no longer wants to follow Washington's instructions, whether it is oil or other aspects. And rashly expanding crude oil production will lead to rapid decline in oil prices, which is not something the Saudi government wants to see.

If it is in accordance with the consistent style of the United States, it is likely to adopt unpleasant means to force the production of oil to increase the output, but this time the United States does not dare to do too much. The reason is simple. Saudi Arabia is not a soft persimmon and can fight back at any time.

According to Reuters' analysis, Saudi Arabia and other countries have long had response. As early as 2019, Saudi Arabia had threatened oil transactions with currencies other than US dollars.

In addition, Saudi Arabia can also choose to interrupt the weapon cooperation with the US defense contractor to purchase weapons from other countries, and even combine other European Parker countries to restrict US investment or increase sales prices in the United States. The impact.

It is not new to sacrifice other countries to save the United States for the United States, but the Bayeng government apparently kicked the iron plate this time. Saudi Arabia is not a small country that can be casually controlled.
