On January 2, the staff worked at the New York Mercantile Exchange. Affected by investors' concerns about tight crude oil supply and the depreciation of the US dollar, the international crude oil futures price on that day exceeded the US $100 per barrel mark for the first time in history. International oil prices rose sharply on the first trading day of 2008. At about 12:06 p.m. EST on the 2nd, the price of light crude oil futures for February delivery on the New York Mercantile Exchange reached $100 a barrel in electronic trading, which broke the international intraday record of $99.29 a barrel set in 2007. Xinhua News Agency issued that on January 2, the international crude oil price broke through the $100 mark for the first time, reaching a record high. The triple digit oil price is a key point of great symbolic significance. As long as the mandrel diameter meets the requirements and has sufficient hardness, whether the reason for the soaring oil price is the tension in Pakistan and the Middle East, the recent turmoil in oil producing Nigeria, or the continuous depreciation of the US dollar, the three digit oil price has made the whole earth "Crazy". In an interview with the global times, relevant experts said that high oil prices are not only related to the changes in the world pattern, but also make energy security the top priority of national policies

the oil price breaking 100 directly affects people's lives

the rise of oil price directly leads to the increase of living costs of oil consumption groups. In China, from Beijing to Shenzhen, a large number of cities have fuel shortages of varying degrees. "Car owners" found that the usual 93 # oil has risen to 5.34 yuan per liter. The rise in oil prices has made many people who want to buy cars give up the idea of buying cars. A friend of mine said with emotion, "the rise in oil prices will make car maintenance a big burden in life, so I'd better not consider it for the time being.". At the same time, many passengers traveling by air found that the fuel surcharge on the ticket had been increased again

the soaring oil price has a more comprehensive and extensive penetration into the daily lives of ordinary people. A large number of transportation industries have to raise freight rates to make up for losses. An insider of Maersk, a large global shipping company, admitted in an interview with the global times that the company had lost $900million in the first half of 2007 due to the soaring oil price, "the upward trend of freight rates will inevitably lead to the rise in the prices of various consumer goods, and ultimately the prices of daily necessities, rice, oil and salt have to be shocking"

the situation of major cities in the world is even worse than that of China. According to the International Herald Tribune, the European countries are the first to suffer the most from the rise in oil prices. In gas stations in British cities, the price of gasoline has easily broken through the level of 1 pound per liter. In North America, Alberta, a city in northern Canada, even caused public conflict due to oil price fluctuations. "Wall Street" reported that the U.S. airline industry is accelerating the increase in ticket prices, because they have been under the pressure of high oil prices

crude oil importing countries become winners due to the "disaster". Energy changes the world pattern.

the soaring oil price has caused polarization. According to the analysis of the International Herald Tribune, "oil begins to create new winners and losers in the world, from the whole country to everyone"

in Asia, China and India, two emerging economies, are considered to have suffered the most. 70% of the daily consumption oil in India needs to be imported, and there is not much strategic reserve oil. India's oil sector said that the current high oil prices forced India to suspend imports. However, the rise in crude oil prices is undoubtedly "good" news for major crude oil producing countries such as Russia in Europe, Venezuela in South America, Nigeria and Angola in Africa. Russia has gained multiple benefits from crude oil exports, which makes oil and gas producers very excited. Russia announced earlier that it would spend 12billion dollars from "petrodollars" to build a luxury hotel in Sochi, a city on the Black Sea coast, to welcome the 2014 Winter Olympics

the three digit oil price has rewritten the political and economic map of the world, posing a challenge to some old concepts of rights. Reaching the three digit oil price will be a key point of great symbolic significance. The International Herald Tribune said: "For those oil-rich countries, they are enjoying unprecedented benefits and opportunities, while for those countries that lack oil and rely on imports, especially large countries, they must compete with each other for oil, resulting in a more intense oil game between countries. In addition to being used for this material, this equipment can also be used for the mechanical testing of other non-woven fabrics of the same type." In this context, the oil problem is no longer a national problem, it has become a worldwide problem. How to control this new order is rapidly becoming the central issue of global politics

attaching importance to energy security has become a heavy weight in the decision-making of all countries

accompanied by high oil prices, there is also a panic about the "energy crisis". "The competition to ensure oil supply has become very fierce," the New York Times said

not long ago, the US future energy (SAFE) and the bipartisan policy center jointly directed a decision-making exercise called "oil storm", and the preset background of the exercise was "oil price 150/barrel". In fact, the United States has maintained such decision-making exercises related to energy security in recent years, and ensuring energy has also become one of the priorities of U.S. policy. In order to eliminate the "anxiety" of over dependence on overseas energy, the United States began to strengthen the exploitation of its own oil. Last year, the US Congress approved the expansion of oil exploration area in the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, the Bush administration has invested $2billion in developing other clean energy sources in the past four years

"even a large oil country like Saudi Arabia will only open its downstream industrial chain, but it will strictly control its upstream industries such as oil exploitation." Liu Ming, an energy expert at the Institute of world economics and politics of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said in an interview with the global times, "energy security is related to national interests."

"in recent years, the Chinese government has paid more and more attention to energy security. There are two kinds of artificial intervertebral discs m6-c and m6-l. it is important to completely solve the odor of plastic parts." Experts said that at the end of 2007, China issued a series of policy documents on energy. On December 26th, 2007, China issued the white paper of energy document "China's energy situation and policy" for the first time in the name of the state. On November 7, the national development and Reform Commission issued the catalogue for the guidance of foreign investment industries, which also clearly restricts foreign investment from entering the exploitation of some domestic non renewable resources. "It is a general trend to abandon the energy use mode of heavy pollution and high energy consumption, and one of the policy priorities of energy security is to increase the development of clean energy," the expert finally said, "this is a 'long-term' consideration."
