Subject: RE: BS: DRILL ANWR now!!!!
If the price is being controlled by foreign and domestic concerns, drilling in ANWR isn't going to accomplish anything at all, except putting a few more dollars in the pockets of these concerns at the expense of something precious and irreplaceable.
While I'm not very happy about the high prices enriching people who don't deserve it, we need high gasoline prices to motivate people to conserve more and to explore other fuel sources. The government won't do it. The oil companies won't do it. Consumer demand and the auto industry are going to have to do it. The only way that is going to happen is if it becomes too expensive for people to continue to drive gas guzzling vehicles.
