On Saturday 9/14/2019, 17 drones were launched against 2 of Saudi Arabia's oil installations, and used cruise missiles to cause significant damage. Half of Saudi Arabia's oil supply is now offline as a result, and 5% of the world's oil supply. It looks like it was done by the Iran-backed Houthis, but the US is pointing the finger at Iran. Oil prices have seen a massive spike as a result of this attack:

This is quite significant, and I'm surprised no thread has been started on this already.

EDIT: Oops, I see the thread from vermontsavant now.

I heard gas prices shouldn't spike to much because of domestic oil reserves
