An oil crisis is set to further shatter the fragile global economy. Oil prices, which are trading at $106 are likely to coss $250 per barrel due to the crisis in Iran and a fall in global demand.

A slowdown in China, world's second largest consumer has cut down demand for crude oil dratically. The Euro zone has also seen a further drop in oil consumption.

With European Union sanctions from July 1, 0.6 million of barrels of oil will be off the market per day, resulting in an immediate hike of crude oil prices at $130/barrel, says Business Insider.

The highest importers of oil from Iran will be worst affected by the Iranian crisis, according to Business Insider.
