Thread Name: BS: DRILL ANWR now!!!!
Subject: RE: BS: DRILL ANWR now!!!!
First-some constructive replies/suggestions. The oil shale being one. Second, this ain't just about ME, or MY kids...it's about a lot of folks and a lot of kids.
Methinks you protesteth too much when you mention "...blowing (sic) down the highways at 70MPH in SUV's and tour all summer in 40 foot motor homes forever!" Dunno 'bout you, but I only know ONE family in my neck of the woods with a motorhome/RV vehicle. Granted we live in a smallish, population-wise, area.
Yes-drilling ANWR will be a long process...but as mentioned, a good deal of the price of oil is set by SPECULATORS in commodities (about 50%). Even a token move beyond Dubya stopping the flow of oil to the SOR...which was pretty trasparent and ineffective...will help drive some prices down. I applaud nations that have become more energy independent through ethanol distillation. I believe the price of oil has now crossed the line where such previous attempts ARE now worth it. All of this while listening to how Chevron has just announced RECORD oil profits for this quarter...the second to do so.
Yeah-a group of clergy will pray for the lowering of gas prices. That will definitely do it. Gonna get my bus tix this afternoon and see if I can start it up again. Too bad I missed it LOL.
It ain't a "red-herring" Bobert
