Thread Name: BS: gas prices
Subject: RE: BS: gas prices
I said that, Ebbie, more as a jest than anything else. I do believe there will be an effort to develop the oil reserves in Alaska, and I would favor it if it can be done without totally destroying the environment up there.

We (the U.S.) simply must find an alternative to depending upon the Middle East to supply us with oil. At least that is my opinion.

I seriously doubt, Kendall, that any kind of boycott would work. Until there is a viable alternative, Americans are going to continue to drive cars that require a lot of oil and gasoline to operate them.
