US Dollar/Euro/OPEC/Iran War/Iran Oil US Dollar/Euro Replacing US Dollar For Oil/Death Of The Dollar: "The Euro-zone does not run a huge trade deficit nor is it heavily indebted to the rest of the world like the US and interest rates in the Euro-zone are also significantly higher.

And nearly everything you can buy for dollars you can also buy for euros—apart, of course, from oil. If OPEC were to convert their dollar assets to euro assets and then require payment for oil in Euros, their assets would immediately increase in value, since oil-importing countries would be forced to also convert part of their assets, driving the prices up.
