However, the arrival of Biden in the White House seems to have calmed tempers somewhat, as talks have resumed in an attempt to bring Iran back into the agreement restricting Iran's nuclear development. Other funnels for oil shipping include the Suez Canal, the Turkish Strait, the Strait of Gibraltar, the Strait of Malacca and, finally, the Panama Canal.
