Can somebody please point me in the general direction to the answer for this question? Thanks!
How do low fuel prices affect the nation's security?
Low prices make the U.S. less dependent on foreign oil, so foreign governments have less influence on U.S. foreign policy. The national economy is stronger. Therefore more of the national income can be spent on the military. On the other hand, foreign countries dependent on oil revenues for their economy tend to become unstable, which can lead to more war.
