Various factors, such as population growth, biofuels development, oil price rise, midlle class’ life style, urbanization, WTO’s stipulation, influenced the increase. Political protests, lauched by middle and lower classes, occured in many developing countries, especially in Africa and Asia. They demanded their governments decreasing the price soon.

In reality, it brought benefits for Americans mostly and did not contribute meaningfully decreasing the suffering of the poor in developing countries.
