it is not just the $200M...don't forget the other costs
America is paying for the Iraq war with more than just tax dollars.
Headline: 'Crude Oil reaches $53 a barrel'
Headline: 'Unease with Iraq war causing Crude Oil prices to skyrocket'
Knowing that the US uses about 18 million barrels of crude or approx. 700 million gallons of gasoline a day. This is what we can expect to pay as a country if .50 cents additional per gallon of gasoline due to the war:
128 Billion American Dollars a year
10 Billion, 667 Million American Dollars a month
2 Billion, 450 Million American Dollars a week
350 Million American Dollars a Day
You decide...is it worth it?
