Australia joins EU in implementing price cap on Russian oil
December 04, 2022 - 9:08AM

Australia and G7 nations are joining the European Union in adopting a global price cap on Russian oil.

The price of one barrel will now be capped at US$60.

The cap comes a day before an EU embargo on Russian oil shipped by sea takes effect and a ban on insurance for those supplies.

It’s a key step by G7 nations to prevent a sudden loss in Russian oil, which could lead to a surge in energy prices and further fuel inflation.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has labelled the price cap as “weak” and not “serious” enough. ... rallPos=10

Laughter is the best medicine. Age-appropriate behaviour is an arbitrary NT social construct.
Don't tell me white lies. Gaslight me at your peril. Don't give me your bad attitude. Hypnosis, psychosis. Tomarto, tomayto. There are *4* lights. Honey badger.
If I'm so bad, pass me by. ;)

And one more thing,

Also, as George Carlin said, "I have no stake in the outcome." I'll stick around for the comedy.
