Do you support to domestic oil drilling?
To become independent of foreign oil forever, and to reduce gas prices?
Absolutely. Allow drilling here in an environmentally-friendly way, and continue to look for alternatives to fossil fuels as we do so. I had read recently that the U.S. has oil and natural gas reserves available equal to a supply that would provide us with enough fuel, at current usage, to last two hundred years. We are hostages to oil-producers that are not our friends and who could shut off our supplies at a moment's notice to 'punish' us. I am old enough to remember the 1973 Oil Embargo by OPEC which caused shortages in America and gas lines at the stations. Drill, baby, drill.
I agree with you. I really don't understand why shouldn't we. I guess threre is too much political game going on, and the democrats try to appease to their typical electorat.
We would drill in the Africans........
We would drill in the Alaskans...............
If , we would do this thing, in the name of another................
why not in the name of "ourselves:"

Much less in such a corporative culture where there is no ethics,...

How do we make sure this doesn't happen again you ask? Deregulate further and open more of the gulf to drilling. That could only makes sense to those in the oil companies back pockets.

Contrary to what has been suggested in several posts here over the last few weeks, Obama's supposed imposition of "regulation after regulation, roadblock after roadblock" is not what's holding up domestic oil drilling, it's the oil companies themselves holding out for higher profits.This...

The U.S. is only one of several countries that drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Either directly or under license Spain, Norway, India, Malaysia, Venezuela, Vietnam, Mexico and Brazil all benefit from that resource. Now, all the others will enjoy reaping the profits while the U.S....
