JU sociology Prof. Nathan Rousseau discusses potential U.S.-Syria conflict on Action News Jax
A United States-Syria conflict likely would adversely impact the stock market and fuel prices, Jacksonville University associate sociology Prof. Nathan Rousseau said in an Action News Jax (WTEV CBS-47 and WAWS Fox 30) report about the potential local impact of another U.S.-involved war in the Middle East.
“I would not be surprised at all to see that happen, for gas prices to shoot up 20, 30 cents gallon probably fairly soon,” Rousseau said in the Wednesday, Sept. 4 report.
If Syria were to retaliate against the United States, it’s not likely Jacksonville-area military bases would be targeted, Rousseau also said.
“I think the targets will remain New York, Washington, the bigger metropolitan areas,” he said.
