The world has it's eye on oil, but little is said about the other refining and exports that rely on the refinery plants.
Saudi Arabia has a unique refined oil that adds performance and longevity to vehicles that consume it. It was a state secret for many years, but in a 2009 raid of a suspected terror group, Seal Team 7.2 uncovered a stockpile of data related to the oil refining process in Saudi Arabia.
Gypsy's have long been persecuted, and nearly exterminated in the 1940's, due to their nomadic lifestyle and general appearance. For many centuries it seemed like no land was fit for them, until they found Saudi Arabia.
At first, the Saudi's didn't welcome them, until one day, as a Gypsy was being assaulted near a barrel of oil, some Gypsy tears fell into the oil. The attackers then put the oil in their vehicles and noticed increased power and overall increased performance.
A trick of the Gypsy is the ability to produce tears on-demand - their long history of being hated by everyone makes sad memories easy to conjure.
Gypsy tear production has skyrocketed in recent years, and the numbers are staggering. Even when factoring in the shrinkage due to evaporation, or the ever-present caravan fires that plague the Gypsy community, the export tonnage is impressive.
With the recent attacks by Iran, Saudi's, car makers, and Gypsy's are questioning what the future holds.
"Where we sell our tears now?" exclaimed one unidentified Gypsy. "Tears of me just sit in barrel in stupid hot desert" punctuated another.
Little known Italian car maker Ferrari has temporarily suspended production of their cars until the crisis is resolved.
"Our cars no like the oil with no Gypsy tear" stated one Ferrari executive at a press conference. "The tears make-a the car not catch the fire" he added.
Ironically, the only people that can afford a Ferrari are the Saudi Royal Family who's coffers are now frozen as a result of the attacks.
The Saudi Royal Family declined an interview with WCNN, but their spokesperson released the following statement to media outlets:
عائلتنا خائفة للغاية من أننا لن نكون
أغنياء مثل الخراء بعد الآن.
