    It is everyone's enemy. Oil. With the skyrocketing price of oil, many people wonder: Should I go roll green on my bike, or just wait and keep on driving, hoping that the price will go down? So, what should the government do to bring the price down? We could go do some offshore drilling, or go green with biofuels and other alternative energies. Both would take a few years to get going. Oil companies would have to find where to drill, and then build a drilling platform, and then provide for the US. That takes time, and it also doesn't help the environment. We could make biofuels, but how? More Ethanol? Soy or Canola? Algae? We could also get electric cars that run on some sort of renewable energy, but that would take at least 5 years to get going, so what should we do?
