The article presents an analysis of the potential impacts of protests on the security of oil supplies in the Middle East. It examines whether uprisings aimed at removing government leaders such as Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali of Tunisia from their office can stabilise or worsen the situation. It is suggested that proper understanding of the meaning of the such movements in the historical context can help explain the true impact of these events on oil prices.
