In about 6 months the words 'South Sudan" will be the newest and 196th (roughly...depending on the definition) country in the world. Their referendum has 98.9% support for the split...quite impressive- I think we got to about 49/51 here in Canada? Ah but the Nation within a Nation is still attached to Canada :)
This is excellent! My understanding is that "south" Sudan has been tied up in a pseudo-civil war involving militatants on one side and, arguably, militants on the other- or something like that (are my ignorances too much?).
But MORE interesting perhaps, is that South Sudan will now have an opportunity to tap into some of their oil reserves...which inevitably will be sold in the West.
And finally, my question:
What do you expect will happen to gasoline prices here in Canada? Rise? Fall? About the same? And why?
