Economic Overview: Although Russia is one of the BRICs’ countries; it is showing some weakness over the last years with the Euro crisis. The country suffered with economic problems that made its economy to slow the foreign demand. With the weaker foreign demand and the domestic fiscal consolidation made the output growth reduced to 3.4% in 2012. The weakness extended to 2013, with first quarter real GDP falling 1.1% from the previous period, reducing 12-month growth to 1.1%, the lowest rate since 2009. In this scenario, the investment in opening a BFSI in Russia would bring really bad results in terms of profits. In addition, the inflation in Russia rose up to 7.2% in April 2013. The final reason why Russia is going to provide a bad economic perspective to our company is direct related with the crisis in Ukraine. With this crisis, Russia would suffer a major recession and is being strongly affected due to its high dependence on energy supplies via Ukraine .
Coal, crude oil, and natural gas are all considered fossil fuels because they were formed from the buried remains of plants and animals that lived millions of years ago.
The main usages of petroleum are bunker fuel, detergent, jet fuel, diesel fuel, heating oil, paint, photographic film, food additives, make up, medicine, and candles etc. Actually, the petroleum usages are very broad. If the country is experiencing oil shortage, everything must be very expensive. You may eat some food with food additives, which is a material from petroleum, in your stomach, even though you do not drive or travel around the world by airplanes. Moreover, petroleum has a lot of advantages to generate electricity. It is easy to transport and store because it is a liquid. Compared with natural gas, natural gas is hard to extract and store because it is gas. Natural gas requires higher technology to extract and store it. Moreover, the density of petroleum is higher than natural gas and coal. We can save more room to store petroleum. For government’s aspect, they may want to use some energy, which are stable and easy to store. Although the renewable energy is unlimited and eco-friendly, the costs of built and operate it are expensive. So, the fossil fuels are the best energy for us to use now. Peak oil crises affect our life, and we cannot find any energy to replace it.
The present study is intended to analyse the relationship between oil prices fluctuations and its role on GDP growth of United States economy. Oil crisis is prevailing in almost all developed and emerging nations for more than 40 years. Remarkable increase in oil prices have commenced from 2001 and decrease in prices was observed in 2008 during financial crisis. During decreased demand in Dec 2008, the crude oil prices dropped from 145 USD to 33 USD. However, soon prices started to rise sharply as then before.

Turkey has 81 provinces, with approximately 20 major cities populating millions, and continues to grow each year. Turkey’s rising middle class has resulted in an explosion of consumer demand. The country is home to a young, educated labor force with over half of the population under the age of thirty; this makes the market huge and dynamic for international investors. Over the last year Turkish firms and individuals invested $228 million dollars in the U.S. In 2014, Turkey’s imports from the U.S. reached $11.6 billion. While this was a slight decline from 2013 ($12 billion) and record-breaking 2011 ($14.7 billion), total U.S.-Turkey trade remained at a near record of $19 billion. Over 1,000 small, medium and large U.S. firms have already opened offices in Turkey. Given its close proximity to markets in Europe, the Middle East, and Central Asia, Turkey serves as a regional hub for many of these firms (U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Turkey, Why Turkey?).

World oil demand is increasing as emerging economies need more energy to increase their living standards. Estimates, shown below, are that by 2030, China and India as emerging markets will import over 70% to 90% of their fossil fuel needs (1) .

The Egyptian oil and gas industry supplies vitality and key chemicals for homes, commercial enterprises, and transport, and subsequently assumes a key part in the Egyptian economy. It gives around 87% of Egypt 's essential vitality and records for around 35% of Egypt 's fare incomes (EIA, 2013).
