Thread Name: BS: DRILL ANWR now!!!!
Subject: RE: BS: DRILL ANWR now!!!!
Sadly, the "population" saying no aint gonna stop it. I keep tellin' ya, but NO ONE seems to respond with some further elucidation: it's the commodities SPECULATORS responsible for at LEAST 50% of the price of oil per barrel being where it is.

A fall in the Commodities market, which is linked to NOTHING in reality, will kill the oil cash-cow. So MOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! It's dot coms all over, except the oil industry invented the modus operandi. Even a "token" move to drill ANWR, or a "new source" (oil shale), or hybrids will kill this. So y'all go out and buy the new Ford Escape hybrid, or Prius, or the Honda hybrids. Watch what happens. Within five years, hybrids will be the name of the game. Bet on it. 40 mpg on an SUV will be common. This will send all the oil Emirs and Mavens into catatonic fits.

I seriously think someone needs to make the move--even if it only nets 800 days of oil. It WILL have an impact. Meanwhile, I drive my fuel efficient 4-cyl. car. I am, seriously, trying to do my part. How about youse guys, eh?
