      I don’t want to pay $10 for a gallon of gas, do you??

      So far, with everything happening in Egypt we have been lucky about one thing. Nothing has been stopped from transporting through the Suez Canal. If it had, our gas prices would have skyrocketed worse than in the 70s.

      Now I think we need to put the idea of drilling on our land back on the table. We need to be able to control our own resources and I just don’t understand why we don’t.

      But what about the environment? Well, if you take a look at the crisis in the gulf a little further you will learn that it became a crisis because of the environmentalists! Yes, that's true. It was the environmentalists that fought to make sure drilling doesn't happen too close to shore. If it was closer to shore we would have been able to fix the problem in the gulf quicker and so much less damage would have been done (and cleanup would have been quicker too). So in reality, the environmentalists created their own self fulfilling prophecy!

      I hope the administration re-opens this issue and reconsiders its position. What do you think?

        • What about drilling in North Dakota?  The oil is there, they just have to drill for it.  And I can’t tell you how many wells I saw sitting idle as we drove thru Wyoming this winter.  It’s ridiculous.

          And even more important than new drilling, how about car manufacturers getting off their lazy butts and making affordable vehicles that get 30+ miles to the gallon. Stop building gas guzzlers.

        • I agree....

          I think we are planning to run the oil wells dry elsewhere before we drill our own... World domination!

          Also if we relied on our own resources it would provide more jobs, financial stimulation, etc.....

          Again I think in too simple terms so I know there’s more to it than what I knowtongue out
