7. Yes, but too early to gage the full impact.

Oil price will be set more by short-term fear for a while, then settle down. Market boys will make a ton playing the stocks on Monday.

A couple of good reads on the subject....

The latest drone strikes on Saudi Arabian oil-production facilities likely would have a limited direct effect on the U.S. economy, but could result in higher gas prices, potentially exerting an additional drag on slowing global growth, economists say.

While the total impact of the Saturday attacks remains unknown, analysts say the U.S. economy is very different than it was in the 1970s, when surging oil prices tipped the economy into recession. Oil-price shocks no longer pack the same punch, they say.

Saudi attacks: Oil price to spike as production halves

Global oil prices are set to rise sharply after Saturday's attacks on two Saudi Arabian oil refineries cut the country's oil production by more than half, energy analysts have predicted.
"Any attack on Saudi Arabia is sure to shake oil markets because they currently hold the majority of spare crude production capacity," warned Bernadette Johnson, vice president of market intelligence at energy analysts Enverus.

She said if the production cut was prolonged, "we should expect to see a big jump in price until the fields return."

The financial channel CNBC cited several energy analysts as saying that oil prices could immediately spike by $5-$10 when markets reopen on Sunday night (US time), while other commentators predicted $100 (90) per barrel of oil. On Friday, Brent crude traded at $60.22 a barrel.
