I've seen a rumor start to float around that the Saudi king has died. The story goes that he argued with Obama on the phone about what should be done with Mubarak and Egypt. After the king got off the phone, he was angry, had a heart attack, and died.

The story sounds reasonable enough to be true. The fact that he was recovering from some medical treatment over the past little while is known.

If the story is true, this might matter to you because Saudi Arabia produces a large portion of the world's oil. Disruption there from any source, siblings fighting over who gets to be top dog, unhappy peasants taking this opportunity to overthrow a hated government, etc, could interrupt supplies or even just threaten to interrupt supplies.

And if that happens, then oil prices will rise (supply and demand after all), gas prices will rise, and our green shoot economy will be shot in the green foot.

Just that various Saudi ministers deny it. Nobody has seen the king in public.
