Obama has taken a tough line on Iran, imposing sanctions that have cut the country's oil exports in half. It remains to be seen whether that's enough to prevent the country from building a nuclear weapon.
What would definitely send oil prices higher is a military strike on the country. It's not thought that either Romney or Obama would order such an attack solely over the nuclear program, but Israel may feel like it has more freedom to act on its own if Romney were president.
Obama and Romney square off on just how much to tax the rich and the middle class in terms of income, investments and estates.
