Think Europe cares about the Georgia thing now?

Russia Shuts Off All Gas Supplies Via Ukraine, Leaving Europe in the Cold

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

AP

KIEV, Ukraine — Russia has shut off all its gas supplies to Europe through Ukraine — the latest move in a pricing dispute that has reduced or halted fuel deliveries to a dozen countries during a winter cold snap. The effects of Moscow's bitter fight with Ukraine over gas payments is quickly spreading westward.
...
By early Wednesday, Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Romania, Croatia, Serbia and Turkey had all reported a halt in gas shipments, while France, Germany, Austria, Poland and Hungary had reported substantial drops in supplies from Russia.

Morons. They were all about not getting involved with Russia invading Georgia, and now here's a sample of what Russia wants to do. Hope y'all like the cold!

And apparently we're giving it to them, seeing as prices are starting to rise again

European Union issues 24-hour deadline for Russia to restore gas supplies
...
Mirek Topolanek, the Czech prime minister whose country holds the rotating EU presidency, threatened to treat the conflict as a political and diplomatic snub to Europe if talks between Gazprom and Naftogaz scheduled for Thursday failed to settle a dispute over gas prices.

"There is a political dimension to this problem," said Mr Topolanek said. "Tomorrow is a key day. If supplies are not restored tomorrow, then we will have to see a strong EU intervention."

i love how immediate the price jumps are at the pump despite these prices are for february deliverables and shouldnt be felt yet but if prices go down you won't notice those for weeks.

price of a barrel slipped $6 today, let see how long it takes for prices to dip at the pump.

oh and fuck russia.
