6. I don't see how skirmishes in middle-east can cause gas shortages in USA

because recently USA is producing more oil than is consumed in the country.
We are no longer subject to oil embargo threats from the middle-east.
I still remember empty gas stations back in the 1970's and I needed gas badly due to daily 70 mile round trip to work. But count on oil companies jacking up prices claiming shortage on world markets. Why should US gas prices go up when the cost of producing oil in USA remains the same?
