all the talk about Anwr...to bad it fails to see that guess what that oil will not be pumped even this year, or next if was opened...it would take years...and also its not 100% they find Oil.....and if they do, its not that large of a supply, would make a small dent. Where the $ is is in Profits to big oil. Supply and Demand is yes part of it, but Price Gouging is a large part as well.
Getting off this addiction is not a environmental issue, its a National Security issue. The less pollution and CO2, is a great bonus.
Ridiculous. First, yes there is oil. Let me repeat that: There IS
oil there. We know there is. They explored and found it. It's not a question up for debate unless you are willfully ignorant. Since I know you are not, stop flame baiting.
Second, So what if we wouldn't start pumping oil for two years. Are you suggesting that in two years we'll be better off importing even more oil? That's ridiculous too.
Third, one of the reasons our oil companies are not doing more exploration in the US is because... if they can't get the oil we KNOW
is there, why bother searching for more? We could litterally be standing on top of enough oil to completely eliminate imports... and not know it because of our stupid... ignorant... foolish... retarded national policy, supported by the idiots of our day.
The pinnacle of irony is each of you crying and complaining about profiteering when it is all of you supporting idiotic policies that force high prices on our selves. So come off it.
You force the gasoline companies to use Ethanol, that is horribly expensive to other additives.
You force them to import oil by preventing drilling and exploring.
You force them to have 30 some odd specific formulations for different cities and states.
You force them to not build more refineries, choking capacity.
You dump tons of taxes on them, from tariffs on the forced imported oil, to environmental taxes on the refineries, to transportation taxes on the distribution, and a full $1 per gallon in tax at the pump... and then whine about gouging.
Complain about prices?? Look in the mirror idiots! There is only one person to blame, and it's the guy staring back at you every morning. Dave Ramsey has a saying called "The stupid tax". Money you lose from stupidity. This is the ultimate one right here.
