Running Dry

The article stresses the inability of Iran to maintain its oil production, which is the main source of finance for the country's aim to develop nuclear weapons. The increasing prices of petroleum products worldwide has impeded the ability of Iran to produce oil. The National Iranian Oil Co. plans bring in $50 billion in 2006 and account for 85% of the nation's exports. Since the company is a battlefield for competing powers within Iran's regime, it has not been able to invest enough money to keep the crude flowing.
