Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

I don't even want to contemplate it.

I hopeful that this issue in Libya gets resolved (like in Egypt) and crude loses its present panic price factor, dropping back down to around $90 or lower.

But, all eyes should be on the Kingdom. They control 20% of the world's reserves and output about five times what Libya does a day.

From what I understand we don't get the bulk of our oil from there, most of it comes from Canada Mexico and Venezuela

And do what? The market determines the price and the market is damn jumpy right now. ANY protests or even a THREAT to the Kingdom's production and exports would be a really bad thing.

They would bring in the military to prevent sabotage of the oil flow and try to prevent fires

I haven't looked recently, but Canada and Mexico used to be the top two import countries, followed by SA.

Regardless, crude is a globally-traded commodity. It would have a massive impact on what "we" pay at the pump.

I don't see why any revolt by the Saudi population would include them destroying by far their biggest source of wealth.

Retreating Iraqis set fire to Kuwait's production as a method of scorched earth.
