USA 30 year bonds and 6 month bonds now pay a very similar interest rate, indicating very little long term confidence in the USA economy, and a desire to earn as much interest as possible for as long as possible before the bonds ultimately become totally unredeemable.
But USA control of Middle East oil and gas is unlikely to influence the price at which oil and gas is traded globally, as price is ultimately set by supply and demand in an era of depleting supply.
As the USA uses roughly a quarter of the worlds oil, then worldwide recession might add two years to the life of oil - again recognising that this is based on an artificial 'extravagent level' of use for the purposes of illustrating a broadly true principle.
